Realy you should have kept images of your system. All you can do is install sp1 and get what updates you can

Do you have backups on external media of your stuff before this situation happened? If not, I will let others help out, because I have no answer concerning malware situations.

If you have malware delete all paritions during install and let windows create new ones that should kill it

You may (or may not) be able to decrypt the .kodc files. Depends on how old your variant of the malware was.

Kodc is a malicious program, belonging to the Stop/Djvu ransomware family...
...There are currently two versions of Djvu ransomware infections: old and new. The old versions were designed to encrypt data by using a hard-coded "offline key" whenever the infected machine had no internet connection or the server was timing out/not responding. Therefore, some victims were able to decrypt data ... however, since the encryption mechanism has been slightly changed (hence the new version, released in August, 2019), the decrypter no longer works and it is not supported anymore. If your data has been encrypted by an older version, you might be able to restore it with the another tool developed by Emsisoft and Michael Gillespie. It supports a total of 148 Djvu's variants...
