Can you still open the file or is it password portected ? If you can still open it, the file simply has the 'encrypted' attribute ticked in the file properties

I cant open the files, i have alsorts of files like word documents and jpegs and it says i dont have access to them. There is nowhere to enter a password. I can see it has the encrypted attribute on but when i try to take it off it says access denied.. But i didnt encrypt these files so i dunno whats going on..
