today our home computer has infected by a virus called Windows XP recovery.
we have had lots of false security warnings, files have been hidden and we've been redirected to irrelevant web pages ect.
i tried following the guide here on bleeping computer on how to get rid of it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-xp-recovery
I used RKill, and unhide and am currently running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Lots of programs are still hidden though.
I tried using TDSSKiller but it wouldn't open.
I'm just wondering what i should do next?
sorry for any inconvenience, and thank you for any replies in advance

Please post the MalwareBytes log when done and we can go from there.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
