Did this before I tried anything else. It just enabled me to see all the files that were hidden that appeared to be missing but not the programs or shortcuts.
...show all hidden files and folders so I could see the hidden files. Then I selected all the hidden files in Documents (example) and right clicked on 1 of them and unchecked the "hidden" box and they all became visible again.
Before and after unhide the system was configured to show hidden and system folders. So can't do anything there to fix this.
After running unhide, make sure that Explorer is configured to show hidden and system folders (tools menu -> folder options -> View tab)
Dig around in C:\Documents and settings\[current user's name] or c:\users\[current user's name], I believe under Application Data and then Temp folder. Some of these viruses are moving a copy of all of the shortcuts to that area.
alternatively, you can just do a search on the whole hard drive - search for *.lnk which is a shortcut. Once you see familiar shortcuts, you'll know you've found the correct folder, and you can just put everything back.

The other thing I had to do in some cases was this:

:dir %Temp%\smtmp /s

Did you try right clicking on the "unhide.exe" file and "run as administrator? You may also need to run it in safe mode.

Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt
- Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
- Vista\Win 7 users:: Right click on SystemLook.exe, click Run As Administrator
- Copy the content of the following box into the main textfield:
:dir %Temp%\smtmp /s
- Click the Look button to start the scan.
- When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
