Can not see files in Program Files folder

Hi – I have a station that got infected and after cleaning it up and allowing to view hidden files the actual files in the Program Files folder can not been seen or executed and do not show up when select from the Start / All programs.

These files can be viewed from a different station on the network.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

You can try a system restore but after the restore be sure to rescan the drives.

Before using system restore, you might try running Rogue Killer:

or Rkill:

and then running an updated Mbam immediately afterwards.

There are full removal instructions for this infection here:

Please post an Mbam scan for review.

OK - thanks everyone for you help.

Followed all of the steps above.

Most everything is working now except the program files - if you click on MS Office for example there is nothing there.
