That's because Notepad is interpreting the file as Unicode text. From
Notepad, if you go File > Open, change "Encoding" to "ANSI" and then
select the file to open, you'll see something similar to the extract you

Can I just upload it here on the forum?
Apart from the initial "PK" which others have mentioned, I can't see any
of the other features which tend to be seen near the beginning and end
of Zip files (such as the names of the files packed within the .zip). It
looks like this file has either been encrypted by the virus (as someone
else here suggested; it might help to know what the virus was), or both
the beginning and end of the file have been lost which would also make
it pretty much impossible to recover anything from a Zip file.
In case you're wondering why everyone's going on about Zip files, it's
because ODT files are Zip files with the contents formatted in a
Easiest recovery is probably to restore the files from a recent backup...
