I am a novice really when it comes to computer problems - but have read up on various problems in the pastand have had to use malware bytes and tdss killer.
Anyway to the problem - searches on google are fine until you click the link when they redirect to various different websites, alongside this a load of documents and data files for games have become read only and hidden meaning they can no longer be used. any help that any one could give with this matter would be greatly appreciated

Welcome aboard Posted Image

Let's see, if we can recover your missing features.
Download and run UnHide

=====================================================================================

Download Security Check from HERE, and save it to your Desktop.

* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

=================================================================================

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (aka MBAM): https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/ to your desktop.

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
* Post the log back here.

Be sure to restart the computer.

Just a note on Unhide - whilst it has made files visible again some of the document coding types have been changed meaning they can no longer be used - wondering if there is any solution to this.

dont really know how to explain it properly but will give it an attempt - i had some work document that were using microsoft word that opened fine previously - now when opened it brings up either a file conversion box or a box that says the document cannot be opened because there are problems with content. im running the 2007 version.

Sorry if i am unresponsive for the next 3/4 days - i am away from home so wont have access to laptop.
