I am running Windows XP and just recovered my system from the TDSS.exe bug, XP Security 2011 and several other nasty little bugs. Final scans by Malwarebytes showed no infections. I finally managed to get the system running relatively smooth, with the exception of no start menu, no security center and now, no wireless ability. I attempted a REPAIR installation of Windows, but to no avail. I ran RKILL and Malwarebytes again, but no infections show. Now I am stumped! :unsure: I am just short of trashing the HD and moving on, but hate to loose my data. Any suggestions? :deadhorse:

Try this:

Please download UnHide.exe by Grinler.

It will unhide folders/files that were set to be hidden by the infection you had.


Let me know if that brings back your missing items.
