Directory C:\Program Files\EncArmySite
No files in this directory.
After deleting these files the browswer no longer came up without being prompted. I tried to reinstall my TrendMicro AntiVirus software but got the error "Cannot create directory system32" (or something close to that). I looked in the Windows directory using Windows Explorer as well as a DOS Shell and indeed could not see the system32 directory. However, in the DOS Shell I can cd into the system32 directory and see that all of the files are in there. Notepad and Word cannot navigate into the system32 directory by clicking since they cannot see the directory, but if I move a file into the system32 directory (using the copy command in the DOS Shell) and enter the explicit path to the file along with the file name I can read it in Notepad and Word.
Can anyone help me make the system32 directory visible again? I'm reluctant to go online again until I've reloaded TrendMicro with its latest definitions. Once I have things going semi-normal again where I can go online I will then go through the process of identifying and eliminating malware as described at the top of this site.
