Files got corrupted, unable to open any of them. Looks like a virus attack?

Hi dear, my system got crashed and restored. Now none of my files with formats, JPEG, PDF, DWG, PSD, PPT etc are opening. It simply shows file not valid, but at the same time all the PNG format files are working, some of the MP4 got corrupted, but some other are not affected at all. This doesn't have anything to do with the restore point I gave. I recently found some affected by Trojan viruses. Can you help me identify the exact reason and to restore my drawings? Thanks in advance,cheers. Merry Christmas! It shows the file size, properties etc. for all the files, but no thumbnail and unable to open. It just happened randomly, not all files, name wise or date wise I can't find any similarity. I have tried: Tried different recovery tools, cmd prompt options, tried to open the files in a different OS and system. Nothing works. Most files I tried to open in different apps and mediums.. I think it was caused by: Trojan virus attack, probably. System recovery made twice last week due to the blue screen appearance in the booting time.
