I had one of these nasty system restore viruses and managed to get it off by running two different Malware programs each two times, where i had to get creative and load it using a USB stick and change the names to actually get rid of all the files.

I then ran a system restore to the point just before this thing got on my computer and then half my folders returned. When I did the Unhide to Show the rest, they came back but are faded out or half lit. Office files won't open so I am assuming I need to re-install but before I do anything else, how do I get the files to show fully? and is there any way to back-up now?!?

Computer also will not start in normal mode, only safe. Got it to at least boot in Safe with Networking on this last round. Help!
