I am going to create a new thread, as I figured out that it wasn't a virus. However, the folders are still hidden. Thanks for all your help

if you can't change the hidden attribute in windows explorer ... it has the SYSTEM attribute as well. Files and folders aren't hidden without a cause! How cone you're so sure it's not a virus/malware?

Hi angie214,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

I may advise you to start a new thread in the System Security sub-forum giving all details ab-initio, instead of tagging on to a old thread.
