unhide.exe

Post by jaynes77 on 6th July 2011, 1:27 am

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

Any more issues?

We need to know any other issues that are plaguing your computer. Kindly give a summary so we know how to continue from here.

Many of the things to note for us would be:

  • Slow computer
  • Error messages
  • Fake antivirus alerts or the icon in the system tray
  • svchost.exe running at 100%
  • System crashes or blue screen of death
