Hello,

Please try this :
Open the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

[to open the registry, vista or 7, navigate to start, then type in regedit, choose from list, right click and say open as administrator. On XP, navigate to start, choose run, type in regedit and hit enter]

Then find the DVD & CD ROM key under above value.
Under the DVD & CD ROM key, find the values UpperFilter & LowerFilter and delete both seperately. Reboot machine and recheck. See below for picture

unable to activate show hidden folders


You are right that this is because of a virus attack. The virus has changed somethign in the registry. Follow the below methods:
Method 1:Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
Go to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.
Method 2:1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. Enjoy!

Error 1311: source file not found:E\LENOVO3000 Y410 USER GUIDE\VISTA\6.LAN\FILES6~1.cab , Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.


The cause of the error is a problem with the Microsoft® Windows® Installer program used by the software. It produces the error when the registry entry AllocateCDRoms at the following subkey is set to a value of 1.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon



Warning!
Problems caused by improperly editing the Windows registry could render your computer operating system unusable. Microsoft has provided a wealth of critical information you need to know about the registry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/support.

Use the Microsoft® Registry Editor only at your own risk and only after backing up the registry as well as the system.dat and user.dat files as outlined in ARTICLE-ID: Q132332 "How to Back Up the Registry" in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Additional information about the registry is also contained in the Help topics in the Microsoft Registry Editor.

Start the Registry Editor and locate the following subkey:

goto start->run and type regedit to start registry editor

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon


Change the value for the AllocateCDRoms entry to 0.
Exit the Registry Editor.

Hi 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER. 2. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1. 4. Restart your computer. NOTE: This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs. If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM. This may help. Good Luck
