If your files are appended with .mado extension, you were infected with Djvu ransomware and is the newest version. This malware is spread with the help of pirated software installers and software cracks, so you should refrain from downloading such tools in the future.
Before you do anything, you should back up your encrypted files on an external drive, such as USB flash (virtual storage can also be used for this purpose). Once you do that, you need to remove Mado ransomware from your computer - scan it with powerful anti-malware software.
Only after you remove Mado ransomware, you can attempt to recover your files. There are several options available, but the chances of success are low.
First of all, you should try employing Emsisoft's decryptor - this tool can help victims under certain circumstances (if your files were encrypted with an offline ID). You can download the program here: https://www.emsisoft.com/ransomware-decryption-tools/stop-djvu.
If that does not work, there are a few other options you could try - a detailed description can be found here.
