  1. I have spydoctor and removed all threats from the scan but all my files are still hidden or I can't access some. Also I went in and put on show all hidden files and system check is on my tab and a desktop icon and it's running slow as dirt. Can someone help me please?

    Welcome to TechSpot! There are several rogue malware programs very active now- some have similar symptoms.

    Your files are not gone, just hidden by the malware. Please go back to Folder Options View tab and recheck 'don't show hidden files and folders'> then recheck 'hide protected system files (Recommended)> Apply> OK.

    Now run the following:
    Download Unhide.exe and save to the desktop.
    • Double-click on Unhide.exe icon to run the program.
    • This program will remove the +H, or hidden, attribute from all the files on your hard drives.
    Note 1: This does not remove the malware- only the attribute causing the 'missing' problem.So it is important for you to continue.
    Note 2: If you are infected with System Check it is important that you do not delete any files from your Temp folder or use any temp file cleaners

    If you have any problem running any of the 3 scans, stop and tell me what is happening, so I can guide you. Getting this preliminary information and reviewing their logs will help me to help you.

    Please leave the logs in your next reply.

    My Guidelines: please read and follow:
    • Be patient. Malware cleaning takes time. I am also working with other members while I am helping you.
