please, somebody please tell me what the name of the malware/whatever that has removed all icons/programs etc (safe mode). only DOS prompt. After googling until bled, I got as far as down loading iexplorer.exe to flash drive. Somebody said to run .exe from flash and that would take care of problem. Problem is, I can't seem to CD to flash drive (probably E:\. I do see a directory begins with ## (not home right now and I don't remember the full name). To add to that, I have Avast Pro running in the background, fully updated. HELP

You can email response back. That way, I will be notified via cell phone. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Mod Edit: Removed email address, protection from spambots ~ Hamluis.

I've asked a mod to move this to the appropriate forum. Please wait for a malware specialist to respond.

Hello,there are quite afew malwares inthe family that can do this.

It appears similar to the one here,Windows Recovery

This infection family will also hide all the files on your computer from being seen. To make your files visible again, please download the following program to your desktop:

Unhide.exe

Once the program has been downloaded, double-click on the Unhide.exe icon on your desktop and allow the program to run. This program will remove the +H, or hidden, attribute from all the files on your hard drives. If there are any files that were purposely hidden by you, you will need to hide them again after this tool is run.
