The detail that I've overseen though, I had my external hard disk connected on the computer when the virus hit me, and I disconnected it right after I realized I have to do with a virus, hoping it hasn't spread on it too!
As you explained, the virus moves all the files shortcuts to the Temp folder, to make the hard disk seem as it's unreadable and erased, so I took care not to empy the Temp folder until I got all my computer files unhidden and restored. But once my computer was clean and functioning again, I did a general cleanup which deleted my Temp folder as well.
Now, after a few days, I realized my external hard disk can't be read - the content is there, I can see it by checking its capacity, I can also see the hard disc is connected, but nothing on it is seen or readable by any computer or scanning program. I can't restore any of the data, my Temp file is long emptied and gone! It also makes the computer slow and weird, as if the virus would be back, but none of the antivirus software detects anything (RKill, Malwarebytes, Webroot Internet Security). I've tried some File Recovery programms (PCTools) but they are also helpless - can't find any content on the disk. Can you recommend me something?
