    Recoverd files from virus and now some programs won't acknowledge them


    I recovered files after being hit by a virus.

    In Windows explore, the folders and pictures show up but less intense. But they don't show up at all in the photo program.

    Is there a reason for this that I can change in the folder and file attributes?

    Thanks for any help.

    Your files were hidden by the virus. Use http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/unhide.exe to automatically unhide them. Then follow Cleanup after Win 7 Recovery Virus if your start menu programs and such are still missing.

    Edit: For more information about unhide.exe, see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic405109.html
