unhide.exe

Post by jaynes77 on Wed 06 Jul 2011, 12:27 pm

After removing the malicious Hard Drive Diagnostic program from my computer using Malawarebytes, I ran unhide.exe to make my files visible again.

unhide.exe has also revealed folders and files in the Widows library (some or all of which I believe were previously hidden).

In order to avoid accidental deletion or modification of important system files, I guess I should probably hide them again.

Can anyone tell me which folders/files should normally be hidden and if there is a simple way of doing this (without going into each file individually).

Thank you.

Jayne
