Hello
recently through the supervision of the board of infospyware.com disinfect the computer with combofix, but now in the C: \ \ I get several folders that had not previously.
These are:
Boot
Config.Msi
MSOCache
ProgramData
I wonder if I can eliminate or minimum if I can stay hidden as they were, because if you change the option of keeping the system hidden folders nothing happens.
OS home premium windows 7
thanks

ProgramData and Boot are required and WERE there before. MSOCache contains part of your MS Office Installation Cd. If you still have that cd you can delete the MSOCache folder if you like - it's only purpose is to save you the trouble of inserting the cd if you make changes to the Office installation.

You can delete the config. msi folder.

If you don't want to see the other folders, enable hiding system files & folders in Explorer's Options

thanks
well, delete the folders Msocache Config.msi and that is fine.
but also and change the option to hide system files and folders in the Explorer Options and yet still visible, I attached the picture.

You think you have to change the option directly from the properties of the folder (boot and programdata)? and if so I think I remember asking if you just want that folder to become hidden or together with all its subfolders.
or what would be the steps now.

Attached Files

Sorry, it is to my never ending regret that I am only conversant in one language - and barely in that one :).

There are two items that need to be verified:
Put a mark in "don't show hidden files, folders, or drives" and
Put a mark in "hide protected operating system files"

hahaha XD
is sorry I forgot that the image would come out in Spanish, but checking these two items you say
"" There Are two items That Need To Be verified:
Put a mark in "do not show hidden files, folders, or drives" and
Put a mark in "Hide protected operating system files"
are properly selected
that's what makes me weird.

You know what? I don't use Windows Explorer but I just did and checked and neither of those folders is a system folder. You are supposed to see them. Don't worry about it and forget they are there.

ok thank you very much.
is that I had gotten used to not seeing them before and they wanted to return to hide, but you're right, nothing happens and I forget they are there.
thanks

@ qwerty9, you should have asked your Malware Advisor at infospyware.com what to do. If you have any more problems, please follow up with that same Advisor! :thumbup2:

hi jacee
Tech Support is that my problem solved now, (he was a Trojan) and resolved the issue.
The only question was about those folders that appeared after using combofix, is that if I asked my advisor at that time on those folders and if I could delete or leave them hidden but only told me not eliminated so get a second opinion here on whether there was any option so they can be hidden.
thanks.
