Anyway, I had the 'System Check' virus last night. Have followed an online tutorial and managed to get rid of it, I think. It says that a feature of this virus is that it hides files a lot, but doesn't delete them. In the tutorial there is part telling you how to make files become visible again
"Now you can unhide all files and folders that have been hideen by System Check. Click start, type in the search field cmd and press enter. Type attrib -h /s /d and press enter. Close command console"
This isn't working for me. Instead when I type all that in I get a load of access denied messages, and nothing becomes visible. I can't find my documents, and several folders are just empty, even though I know they aren't and they have just been made invisible.
How can I get my files to be visible to me again?! I can't find anything at the moment
