I used unhide but the problem is that it only revealed those folders which I can see after enabling 'show hidden files and folders' option in 'folder option' like 'local settings' folder etc. I think it changed their attribute to visible but the folders which I was talking about are still not visible in the explorer.
If you have had any infections, even minor ones, then this program will help open the files that can be hidden by some infections -
Platform: Windows | Category: Security Utilities
Unhide is a program that reverts back the changes made to your files and Windows Registry by the rogue.FakeHDD family of rogue anti-spyware program. This family of malware pretends to be a hard disk repair and system optimization program for Windows. In reality, though, these programs are computer infections that deliberately hide your files and change certain settings in the Windows Registry to make it appear that you have lost data on your hard drive. It will then prompt you to purchase the program to restore the data.

I am attaching these screenshots of 'everything' showing those folders which I am talking about.
<<...recently my antivirus avast detected virus in some folders but none of them are visible in the windows explorer. I have also enabled the show hidden files and folders in the folder options but still the folders are not shown. I can see these folder when I search them in the "Everything" search program but not in the explorer.>>
Can you post a screenshot...of Everything reflecting these folders which are not otherwise visible?

Ok, I got my problem.
Those two folders should be clearly visible...if you follow the designated paths. They are system folders.
You have enabled the system for viewing system folders, correct?
