So I deleted some registry files from the Windows XP Recovery off my sisters laptop(found them on another website). After I deleted a few the computer just restarted. I'm guessing it was the virus. But when I logged back in the pop-ups stopped. I deleted the rest of the keys that I didn't get to. I looked in Local Disk (D:) and found a file with a bunch of random numbers, so I deleted it. After that I search for "Windows XP Recovery" in Windows search. I found them and deleted them, but they didn't disappear. I went to google this site to download the "Unhide.exe" but when I clicked of the link, it redirected me. I used Avira to scan and it detected 5 things, but only quarantined "JAVA/Stutter.X" and "JAVA/Stutter.Z". It's still redirecting. What do I need to do to stop the redirecting and get all the files unhidden?
I read on a site to go to My Computer, click on Folder Options, click on view under Hidden Files and Folders, check "Show Hidden files and Folders, uncheck "Hide Extensions for known Files", then uncheck "Hide protected system operation files". I did it.
