Hello,
my brother downloaded some apps or something and he picked some kind of a virus. While i am in another country i managed to remove the Virus via TeamViewer with some programs.
The only thing that is left are the .docx files. They are now corrupted and i cant find a way to solve it. These files are important. They are now:
Type of File: CAROTE File (carote)

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way of doing so, and without risks involved.
It's the nature of Ransomware, and often why the best defense is a proactive one, with a reputable AV that covers Randomsware.

It's not that the files are corrupted, they are encrypted.

You can potentially try considering this; https://howtoremove.guide/how-to-decrypt-ransomware/

However there are no guarantees that the Ransomware is entirely removed, no guarantees that you'll recover any of the data, and also no guarantees you won't damage something in the process.
