You don't really have choices when repairing files damaged by trojan. You can't repair them. All you can do is to Install them again. For example, your MS Word..exe was damaged. The only way to reapair that is to reinstall MS Office. However, there are instances that the files are only hidden not damaged. You can unhide them by clicking Start at the desktop and click Search. Search for the file e.g. file.doc.The file will be searched even it is hidden. 

To avoid future attacks by trojan, install antivirus programs. Whether it's free or paid, it doesn't matter as long as you update them frequently.

Hi Rochelle,

There is only a little a possibility of repairing files infected with Trojan without deleting them but this takes a lot of risk. However, if exe. file is infected, it is advisable to install it again. A Trojan is identified as a malicious application that may give remote access to intruders to the host computer. Once a file is infected by a Trojan, the computer is now vulnerable to modification or even theft by the intruder. Unlike a computer virus that injects itself to a file, a Trojan acts like an inside control of an intruder to the host computer. Through an infected file, the cyberpunk can now use, modify and control the host computer in order to satisfy his/her purpose without even giving a trace to the computer they used but exposing only the information of the host computer. Thus, it is important to have an anti virus that could regularly scan your PC and identify any malicious file or virus that is present. Note that Trojan directly infects your anti-virus thus making your PC vulnerable to further infection. If infected, do not attempt to open any file unless you have installed a new anti-virus. Then scan your PC and quarantine or delete infected files before using your PC.
