I used information on this site to remove the Windows XP Repair Virus. I ran Malewarebytes quick scan but when unhide wouldn't work I then ran full scan to double check virus was completely removed. It shows virus was removed successfully. I tried running Unhide in normal and safe mode. I have my icons but like others the folders are empty in the programs section of the start menu. When I run Unhide either it does not finish (I waited 90 min) or I get this message:
Processing C:\'Pev' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file

I saw that people were being asked for results of System Look when Unhide didn't work so I downloaded it and tried to run it. When I double click on it I get message "Script Error" Even though I'm logged as an administrator user I tried right clicking and run as Administrator and that didn't work for System Look or Unhide. I do not know what to try next.
I've saw where it is mentioned that programs can be put back manually but nothing says exactly how to do that.

My problem is now fixed thanks to USN Vet. I found and used his suggestion to the topic Windows XP Restore Aftermath. I cant seem to find a way to mark my topic as solved. This site has been a lifesafer today.
