First of all you must remove the virus.

Once you remove the virus and remove the system restrictions imposed by it, follow these instructions to unhide the folders.
1. create a new text document
2. copy and paste the following code:
@ECHO OFF
ECHO Type the drive letter. ONLY the letter.
ECHO ALL FILES ARE GOING TO BE MODIFIED!!!
set /p letter=

ECHO %letter%: selected
taskkill /im explorer.exe /f
ECHO.
ECHO "Modifying files..."
ECHO.

attrib -s -h -a /s /d %letter%:\*.*

ECHO "Process completed."

start explorer %letter%:
taskkill /im cmd.exe /f

Open in new window

3. save the file as repair.bat
4. run and follow the prompts

what do you recommend to remove virus. I ran mcafee, super antispyware, and hitmanpro... not finding it. rebuilding itself.

try using chameleon by malwarebytes (run the svchost.exe file).  Check out the instructions here (even though they are for a different infection).
