  1. :D :p :D Guys or Gurus out there,

    How to debug the hidden files done by the VBS_LOVETTR.BA virus ? It changed all my .MP3

    files into hidden files.

    If you know any ways to revert my damaged .MP3 files, please help. Thanks in advanced.

    Open a dos window, and navigate to where your .mp3's are located
    (If it's on E:\mp3 type "E:" then "cd mp3")

    When you're there, just type "attrib -h -a -s" and you should see all your mp3's... you can also add in "-r", so they won't be read-only...

    Hope this helps :)

    If you are using Windows 2000 or XP (maybe ME), you can just right click on the folder they are all located in and go to "properties" on the menu.

    Uncheck "hidden" and press apply. Depending on your collection, it might take a short while. If "hidden" is not already checked, or half-way checked, then check it and uncheck it again, then apply.

    Just an alternative to the method mentioned above.
