it's called ransomware. Basically they encrypt your files and you have to pay to get them unlocked. (don't pay them) Most reputable sites don't have issues with ransomware attacks. Just reformat the hard drive and start fresh.

its a virus (DONT PAY THE MONEY), try to boot in safe mode and install malwarebytes (its free). and scan the notebook.
if you cant boot in safe mode, then reinstall windows or remove Harddrive and connect it to a docking station and scan it that way.
Good Luck, dont give up!
