  1. Hi..all

    i have a external hardisk...

    some days before i loaded some data from other souces. I think there were viruses which made some files hidden. Now i have scanned my drive with diffrent anti-viruses packages but iam not able to convert the hidden into normal.

    In the top task bar i have gone through view and did view " all hidden files" even then some files are which has become permanently hidden and can be opend only by typing the correct location in the address bar, this address i can see while antivirus is scanning only.


    Plz help if any one has solution to this...
