Windows 7: Renamed folders in application data, need to change them back

Renamed folders in application data, need to change them back

So the problem is had a virus called the system check virus and started going through the manual process of getting rid of it. One part of it is making hidden folders, etc accessible and then renaming the virus files so it doesnt recognise them and they stop running. While in there i accidentally changed two of the folders names which had alot of characters so i mistook it for one of the virus files.
I've since learned these are windows folders and needed. was hoping someone could post a screenshot or something showing what these folders are meant to be called so i can change them back.
I know it was a stupid move but any help would be appreiciated... Thanks (hopefully this makes sense)

You must tell us the names of a few files inside or send screen shots of the open folders to see what files are there.

Only after that one would be able to know the names of the Folders in which these files are located in another computer.

Inside AppData, the 3 Folders are Local, LocalLow and Roaming.

I do not know what the default folders inside these are as I have many applications installed and it will be hard to split them up.
