Sorry, unless you saved the encryption certificate, it is not possible
to decrypt your files.

This won't be what you want to hear but:

Unless you exported the encryption certificates before you reinstalled
Windows, I'm afraid that you are SOOL. The decryption keys were overwritten
when you replaced Windows. There is (currently) no known way of recovering
the data.

Yet another person who used encryption with no need to. What State
leve secrets were you storing on your computer for the Government?
There are easier ways to hide you porno collection. Now it is gone
FOREVER
