I was online a couple of days ago and clicked on a link, than a fake virus scan popped up. It ended up taking all of my files (pictures, videos, favorites) and hiding them. I didnt know what to do to get rid of the virus so I just did a system restore on my computer and restored it back to factory. I lost all of my pictures and everything after that because now when I look under my hidden files they are no longer there, which I knew that would happen if I did a system restore. Anyways…Im not worried about that. Now, when I click on a link on google or bing it redirects me to another page, usually a shopica page. I can go type in the web address in the main search bar though and it will come up. Also under my c files now I find some system files and was wondering what they are.They have Microsoft\CryptnetURLcache in them. How can I still have a virus if I did a full system restore? What do I do?
