How To Recover Your Virus Hidden Files


This is the simplest way to get back files (from your removable memory or storage device) that got hidden or invisible due to an 'unknown' virus.<br /><br />First, <span style="font-weight: bold;">open the folder of your storage device.</span><br /><br /><img src="pdsco.jpg" /> <br /><br /><br />Then <span style="font-weight: bold;">click on the box on the right hand top of the window that has </span><span style="font-style: italic;">Search</span> .....<br /><br /><img src="pdsco_0.jpg" /><br /><br /><br />and press '.'(full stop)<br /><br />It will display all files in that folder.<br /><img src="pdsco_1.jpg" /><br /><br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Remember, this can only happen when a file is hidden due to a virus, not when the file itself is set to 'hidden'</span><br />

How to remove Autorun.inf


Here are some typical malware which can install autorun.inf.exe file to your computer and give your computer a critical strike.
Autorun.inf virus contains three execute files which are kavo.exe, ntdelect.com and autorun.inf. All of them are hidden files. You cannot find the by showing hidden files. The only way to find them is to use DOS command.

Not all user have computer savvy. I was suffered from this virus a lot. Success got rid of it using RegTool and want to share it with you.

To remove Autorun.inf

Tools you need RegTool and AVG anti-virus.

Also here is an easy way to remove Autorun.inf manually!

click Start>Run>enter “CMD” them you will see and command window. In the command prompt, you can search for any exe.files. First we can disable “read only” and “hidden” attributes.
Enter the word in prompt.
Check C drive: key in dir c:\/a/w
2 then
attrib -s -h -r c:\autorun.inf
attrib -s -h -r c:\ ntdelect.com
You can use the same way to disable attributes of other drive such like D, E, etc.
3 OK, everything is done, we can now remove these two files.
For C drive, you can enter
del c:\autorun.inf
del c:\ntdelect.com

The same to D drive
How about kavo.exe? You need to repeat step1 and step 2 to disable attributes.
The delete command is different with them.
attrib -s -h -r c:\windows\system32\kavo.exe
del c:\windows\system32\kavo.exe

last thing you should do:
Open registry editor by entering Regedit.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL-MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Remove Kavo value.

For ensure again run>type> msconfig > hit can not open ms config if virus effected run >type> regedit>hit>can not open registry if virus effected run >type >gpedit.msc>hit can not open group edit policy if virus effected Otherwise, ifyou don't have any vital data on the drive, just format it in another pc.Pleasenote, before insert the Pen drive .Go to run command from start menu OR Press Win key+R and type gpedit.msc and hit>Usser configuration >system>turn off auto play >enable>use down arrow key select all drive >apply >ok.

if u have no problem then i would request u to do a full format of the laptop because it has been affected with virus and though it is removed still it will be hidden in some system files. if u have any inportant data then take it in any of the external media and then after recovery of ur system install symantec antivirus corporate edition 10.6.0 then transfer the data from the media and do a virus scan of the files.

Hidden files and folder not show.


Most likely, you either have a virus or a domain policy restricting the viewing of hidden files.

Here's an easy fix:
1) Go to Start>Run
2) Type "regedit" and click "OK"
3) Expand to HK_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>Advanced
4) Select the value on the right named "Hidden". Right-click and "Modify".
5) On most virus/policy restricted computers, it will have a value of 2, which it shouldn't because it should only be 0 or 1. Change the value to "1" and click "OK".
6) Refresh whatever window you were working in, and it should show you all the hidden files. It will show for all your windows after that until you go to options to change it.
