Yesterday my laptop got into trouble with a virus trying to sell me Windows 7 Anti-Virus 2011,
an obvious virus giving me all kinds of warnings and popups, rederecting my browser and hijacking the Action Center.
I scanned with MBAM and got rid of most of the symptoms. The only problem now seems to remain that I can't access
most of my folders and files, they are simply gone even though my hard drive is the same size and I can access them though winamp/other programs.
I tried a system recovery as well. This gave me access to some of my files but still they're still largely hidden.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help

Edit: problem solved already! Topic can be closed :)
