    I'm not sure what help I can be, but until someone more technical comes along, have you checked to see if your files have actually been encrypted? If so, things may be difficult to rectify, but you could try running www.malwarebytes.org which may get rid of the malware itself, but it probably won't be able to release your files.

    Do you have backups on a separate hard drive? If so, that may help but DO NOT connect the backup drive until you are certain that the malware has been taken care of.

    I've found this which may be of some help. It's not the same email address as yours is showing but the message seems to be the same:

    I'd advise not to click any links in that article, but go to the anti-malware websites yourself to download the tools.
