Ok let us say well eh.. hmm your "friend" got a ransomware. The first thing I would do if I was your friend. Would be to google Ransomware and ransomeware removal. If your friend is a victim for a encrypting ransomware. He/she most probably will have to accept the loss and move on. For some Encrypting ransomware it may be a "decrypter" software. But do not get high hopes of this. The best way to not get infected will be to be very aware of what you are clicking on. Like clicking on links or open attachments in unsolicited emails. Or accepting and installing software from dodgy web sites. Also for PC use a virus scanner

If your browser will allow, run NoScript. Scanning AV will cripple your machine and generate endless false positives. External drives for backups left connected will not protect you.

Edit. Avoid Java, only run Java apps (if you really really must) that use local environments eg the most dreadful MpLabX

I remember in the early days of encrypting ransomware. It could be effective to make files read only. in theory this would stop the encrypting software getting access to your files. But I am quite sure the ransomware of today have found a way around this trick by now. If your friend also hang on to the disk(s) It could be that a decrypting software may show up further down the road. But well I would not bet on it. From what I see your friend have not taken steps to backup data properly. A fatal disk crash would have had the same effect. All files lost
