There is a new issue that your files will suddenly  not be able to open them and that states the file is encrypted.

You maybe infected with a ransomeware virus like Cyptowall or Cyptolocker.

 

Check for the presentce of a file called something like this:

"HELP_YOUR_FILES.PNG"

 

This will explain what has happened to your files and that they have been encrypted by the virus.
