yessir, it would just b a quick and easy way to Actually SEE if the files were deleted, that way we could know if we should extinguish the virus and get data back, or see if we must unhide the files. I would not recommend sticking that usb in the OS again, i would recommend making a windows LivePE, booting from that, then stick the usb in

Gave USBFix a shot but I got this notice:

Attention: cottonball, virus deleted all SD photos-usbfix_alert.jpg

Tried to find a different download button for a 64-bit but there's just one generic download button. Any recommendations?

Sorry FRST and fixlist.txt weren't in the same drive. I really thought I had done that part right. Here's what the C drive looks like on my screen. I just dragged and dropped FRST and the fixlist.txt into C.

ducat1base,

Thanks for the info. No worries about mistakes, we all take part in them.

Try USBFix from here:
http://www.infospyware.com/utiles/usbfix/
It is a Spanish language website, but the program is in English.

To download. press the button that says: Descagar

Then follow the same instructions.

If still no-go, then try runing the program in Safe Mode.

See how that goes.

Were the images in a folder, or just in J:?

The Webroot Security Anywhere that you use, by any chance does it have the images it its Quarantine?

I believe only images were in J. If they were in a separate folder, it was the DCIM folder which was created automatically. Quarantine only displays this:

Nope, still no luck with it. Here's what I got from USBFix

UsbFix [Clean 1] OWNER-HP.txt

And when I ran CMD, access was still denied

But I do notice some folders and files have either been created or rearranged. This is what it looks like now

Did you open an elevated command prompt ?

When you do the command prompt opens to
