Hi......I'm back again :)

Sometime ago I had "Disk Knight" installed in both my PC and USB memory. I did some research and found out that it was not a bad program at all, but it was annoying. So I obtained information and I was able to clean the program.

A few minutes ago my brother needed to print an essay. I borrowed him my USB memory to copy the file and print it from my laptop. At the time I plugged my USB in my laptop I noticed that I had again "Dark Knight." Since I knew how to clean Dark Knight from my laptop and USB, the first step I took was to show the hidden files and hidden folders, but I was not able to do it.....the files remained hidden!!!

I ran my antivirus and antispyware, they found some malware and cleaned them. However, when I tried again to show my hidden files and folders I was not able to do it. Next, I ran CMD to check the files that are in my USB and found the following:

G:\> dir/a:s

autorun.inf
xn1i9x.com

I was not able to find enough information regarding xn1i9x.com, so I do not really know if this program is causing the troubles. One thing I noticed, when I tried to delete the file xn1i9x.com, CMD could not find it.

I am posting my HijackThis:

OK....

I tried several things and found that I have this in my pc:

avpo.exe
ntde1ect.com
ampo.exe
xn1i9x.com

It seems that I cleaned all these programs, but I am still not able to show the hidden folders and files :) For some reason one of these programs, or all of them, or even one I am not aware of, is/are still on my pc.

I am posting again my HijackThis file:
