Hi,

Please see:

Win32/Troldesh

Ransom:Win32/Troldesh.A

https://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/mmpc/shared/ransomware.aspx

Try to restore your files from a recent external backup.

As far as I know there is no way of decrypting your files without paying the ransom...

You might want to ask for free malware removal assistance here:  Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum.
