System infected with a Virus
I am using an AV "nod32 v3 Full Version"
and since last 3-4 years i hadnt ever had any virus attack on my pc/lapy.
few days ago i used flashdrive of a friend ofmine for formating and since then my lapy catched a virus from it.
Exactly what it did was
all folders in my data drives (g h) were hidden and i could see them only when i unchecked "show operating system files " in folder options.
still i coudnt make them visible folders.
on later research i found each folder has a msocache folder with 5 files. "e,g,ghost.mp3,,ghost2.bmp"
i deleted them all but still not able to restore my pc back to health.
also tried using latest update and versions of nod32,avast,winsword to get rid of that but no relief.

or just update eset to v4
theres been ton of module updates with eset v4 and It should be able to remove infection.
eset 3 was good but not as good as v4 ;P
but theres nothing you can do with the damage(hidden files)
just make sure you don't get infected next time :P
more info of the virus.
Eset - Win32/Sality.NAR
ps: eset has detected this virus since 2008 so if you were updated you should not be infected o.O
though I don't think sality does what your description says lol O.O;
