    You caught ransomware. If you don't have backups and don't want to pay, you're SOL. See here for more info:

    consider the following

    1) uninstall the 'editing program' see if this fixes the error. 

    2) Restore the computer to a point before the download

    3) restore files from backup

    4) Pay the ransom to get your files back 

    5) Contact a tech who MAY be able to get them restored.  No promises....
