You probably need the original certificate. What encryption software are you using?

I am sorry to say, but no. The built-in Windows encryption is not as good or versatile as other software solutions. Before you reload Windows you MUST backup the encryption certificate because Windows creates a new one which over-writes the old one. Unless you have a full backup of your old Windows files that have the certificate your files are gone for good.
