^If you installed an anti virus after being infected, then the anti virus will remove the viruses, but it won't repair the damage done by them. You will have to do it manually.

Here is a trick which can restore your windows default hidden files settings...

Follow the details, they are a bit tricky but surely works. I did it myself and avoided reinstalling windows.

Be aware that you actually may be infected by a virus, or maybe you once was, and the registry didnt get proberly restored.

You should open the registry, but remember to back it up. You can make a restore point in system restore, or just open the registry and export the whole thing, or export some selected keys.

Start >> Run >> (type) regedit >> (rightclick on the little my computer icon, and export the whole thing.)

find this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced. Go to the rightside of the window, where the values are. Find the value "Hidden" . Rightclick it and modify it to 1.

This next text is from my own registry. Kopy it to notepad, then rename the notepad file, so it have the extension .reg ,and then doubleclick it.:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
