    Since it is an "important" file, you will obviously have backups you can restore from (maybe in the form of shadow copies).

      Once you're sure you are completely clear of the threats, download[MOD EDIT DELETED] and install it. It's a free utility and works well but if the sheet was open when the attack hit, you may not be able to reconstitute it. If you search your system for files with names starting with a $ symbol, you might find the temporary file Excel creates as soon as you open the original. That could be recovered as the files before you started working on it the last time.

      [MOD EDIT - seems someone doesn't read my previous post. bye ]
