Malware "System check"  and Consequences

Last Sunday I was browsing the internet and something happened. First of all, normally I do not do stupid things on the web, do not go to suspicions sites and always buy and upgrade antivirus software, normally I am using Kaspersky. This year I got (because of own stupidity) some kind of the free software and was punished for that
Anyway, my computer started behave really crazy, messages and to make a long story short I found out that I got some malware “System Check”
It was no other choice and I went to store and bought Kaspersky again and clean the malware. Now this part is fine, no more bad thing and the lesson been learned
But :
Some things still not good: I cannot get into a lot of my folders, because the security was changed something, I have to go to the folder and go to the property and change security tab and change some permissions and uncheck the deny mark and so on…Also, the external hard drive when I click on it to open shows “no files” even I perfectly opened the same drive on another computer
So the question is how to return the system to the previous “configuration”, may be some other software to maintain these kind of stuff

If you have Windows 7 a repair install will not lose any of your programs or files and has always worked really well for me.  Otherwise you have to fix each problem as it comes up.

Still assuming Windows 7 you want to type cmd in the search box and then when it shows up above right click it and select run as administrator then just run that command line in the box.  It will take a while so just let it run.
