... Commiserations :( . Had you taken diligent preventive measures in your OS (e.g. a reputed anti-malware/anti-virus third party suite, coupled with a responsible browsing behaviour), chances are you wouldn't have been infected - but then again, no Security Suite is foolproof... Out of curiosity, was Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) even installed and updated?

Just to get this out in the clear, BORA is a ransonware with very strong encryption, so be prepared to part ways with your personal ENCRYPTED files... Slim chances do exist you can restore at least some of them, but...

Every anti-malware software author has compiled at least one remove-BORA-infection tutorial on the net, this is what a simple G-search would reveal:

Follow your favourite one - be advised the more you use your infected computer, the less percentage of your original files you'll be able to recover (as they are being overwritten in your HD).

Restoring an image back-up of your system and files (should that exist) is your safest bet - as far as I am aware, a simple System Restore (if enabled) won't "restore" personal files (like documents, e-mails, photos, etc...).
