All Files are now hidden
Posted on 2011-09-13
I have a laptop with Windows XP Media Center Edition on it that got seriously infected. I have run Superantispyware and Malwarebytes several times until I got clean scans on both. The problem I have is that all files and folders on the C drive look like hidden files except for Superantispyware and Malwarebytes which I recently installed. The only way that I was able to get the files and folders to appear was to change the setting to "View hidden files and folders." Even after that the files and folders looked like the same shadows of regular hidden files. Also, there is nothing on my All Programs menu except the recently installed Superantispyware and Malwarebytes. Please advise.
