Problems with opening files after MyWife virus system infection

I have a problem with .doc, .xls, .ppt and .jpg files. Our system was infected with MyWife virus. Afterwards all the previously mentioned files cannot be opened. All files are changed to 0 bytes size.
I presume you've cleaned the infected machine? If not, you can find instructions for doing so here. After cleaning, restore the damaged files from backup.
