Re: virus!!!!!!

The folder option in the toolbar can be made to be dissappear by fingering in the registry-editor of your computer.
This might be done by a virus.

Try Restoring your computer to an older restore point.

You may do this by
Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore> Next........

If this does not solve the problem, format your drive with operating system.

Open up Task Manager. Look for a process called kiwee.exe. If it exists, highlight it and click on End Process. Open up Windows Explorer and browse to C:\Program Files\Kiwee Toolbar. Right-click on the Kiwee Toolbar folder and select Delete. Confirm the deletion when prompted.

You should also install some kind of anti-virus software on your system. AVG is a decent free option as are Avast and Avira. If you don't want to manually remove this virus, you can download and install AVG 8.5 free edition and have it run a full scan once you have it installed and it will be able to remove this virus (and any others that happen to be lurking on your system).

Hidden files are not showing

Hi there.
It sounds like you have a virus on your machine, apart from not being able to view hidden files and folders is there anything else thats going wrong with the PC at all?
for example on start-up do you get any strange error messages or has the recycle bin name been changed?

I couldn't view the hidden files when i apply show hidden files in my folder options in tools menu in menu bar.

Folder Options is removed from Tools in Windows by a virus. The virus is called W32.Rontokbro@mm OR W32/Rontokbro.gen@MM

The removal of this virus is slightly difficult. Antivirus can't remove it automatically. However detailed procedure to remove it is available at

About this Virus/Worm:
What it does is creating new files which looked like a folder but its actually a .exe file. Unless you’ve enabled the view extensions in the folder options or else you won’t see the .exe extension of the file. The file is approximately 43.7Kb and normally people will click to open it because it looked like a folder. So after you’ve open it, the virus will run each time during startup and keep on spreading and spreading… into the harddrives.

More troubles coming up. Normally when you click “Tools” in explorer, there’s a “folder options” underneath it. Once the pc is infected with the virus, the Folder Options will be missing, which disabled you to change the options to view the extension of the files. So when you see a new folder appeared from nowhere and you clicked to open it out of curiousity, the virus spread more again. Moreover, the virus disabled the registry edit where you will see this message “Registry edit is disabled by the administrator” everytime you try to edit the registry.

So how to clean the virus then? I found some solution from the following link and have successfully cleaned it from my system.

It will help you to get rid of this virus named W32.Rontokbro@mm aka brontok.a and to get back your hidden files. Source(s):

P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

Couldn't open the hard Drive folders....

hi sir,

i think you have an autorun.inf file residing at your local drives. this probably infected by a virus.

go to control panel >folder option> click View> choose "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files, this will show hidden autorun.inf file. In your explorer, right click your local disk and click explore, this will show all your files and folders of your drive, navigate autorun.inf file, if found delete it.
note: it has an associated file called vbsscript file...if found also delete the same with the other drives. empty recycle bin and restart.

Folder option

You haven't said which OS or program, so I'm guessing you're using windows.

Most programs have a View option in the menu bar, under that would be "Toolbars". You should be able to restore the missing toolbar by checking it on that list.
