why has my text document been replaced with random letters and symbols?


I opened note pad and saw this 


129 0 obj <</Linearized 1/L 402472/O 131/E 283535/N 2/T 402120/H [ 504 219]>> endobj

endstream endobj startxref




Update 2:

I have AVG and Norton, both say I have no malware

    You are not supposed to use more than one antivirus at a time because they conflict with each other.

    what program did you use to make it?

    you need to use the EXACT same program to open it.

    if you made it in Microsoft Word, you cannot open it in WordPad or Notepad.

    what type of file os it? what is its extension?

    sounds like a virus from russia where the virus will change most of your text files to gibberish and only change it back if u pay them money.
