Hello Carapau,

You can run this command below in a elevated command prompt to remove the hidden folder attribute from the C:\Program Files folder.

attrib -h "C:\Program Files" /s /d


Hope this helps,
Shawn

Try this (again from an Elevated Command Prompt):

attrib -h "C:\Program Files" /s /d

I got this message: "O ficheiro de sistema - C:\Program Files não será reposto" which is something like "The file system file - C:\Program Files will not be reinstated"

Carapau,

Are you using the command in a elevated (right click and run as administrator) command prompt?

Umm, strange. Well, since it just happened, you can also do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo it.
