    I am not sure, from your title "Hidden files not visible..need help"
    what help you are seeking.

    If you are suspecting a malware intrusion, please start with the opening posts by Julio.
    Read and follow carefully these first three posts.

    If you are wanting to display hidden and system files within file manager, please be aware that this is a safety feature which should only be altered if you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing, and do not mind having those files (normally required system files) exposed to accidental "File Management" by the user.

    One thing I would observe about your HJT log... it looks like you are running some P2P software, (BitComet). You may wish to read these forums regarding P2P since this is a primary intrusion point for malware.

    Kritius has posted elsewhere...
    Kimsland has an excellent post on the subject in this thread

    hi hellborne

    You will be required to uninstall your P2P software BEFORE you run the 8-step virus removal tool suggested by touch. Thank you.
