Help!

My PC was hit with Windows Recovery trojan. After spending several hours, I was able to clean it up using Malwarebytes' free down load.

However, after reeboot, all folders were still hidden. As per instructions posted on this forum, I tried to install Unhider.exe to unhide the files.

But there was a kernel32.dll file missing and therefore it did not allow me to install Unhider.exe.

However I downloaded Unhider.exe from a different site (Cnet site) and it didn't give me any Kernel32.dll error. After downloading, when I double clicked on it, the initial screen came up and that's it. Nothing else happened! Even after running it all night.

So I quit and closed the program. Tried to run this program in Safe Mode but again Kernel32.dll error pops up.

I would appreciate it if you gurus out there could help in
1. What I should do for the Unhider.exe to work properly and
2. Is there any alternate way to unhide folders (Root cause for crash was the Windows Recovery trojan but is removed)

Thanks

To clarify, you tried this program? - Unhide.exe

Please try it once more to make sure you're getting the error on it.

It depends on the infection Malwarebytes is very good at removing common malware, I use it at work a lot as the students and staff are getting infected at different times. Now some of the newer TDSS variants, it is not so hot at, but often will still pop up clues. But for your average scareware or other trojan, it is great. It even identifies some obnoxious toolbars and game loaders.
