I successfully cleaned my computer of System Fix virus using Kaspersky, Super Antispyware, and Malwarebytes. My files and folders remain hidden. I have tried Unhide.exe several times and have had no luck. Any ideas?

•Click the Tools item from the menu at the top of the window (if you don't see Tools press the Alt key on your keyboard and it will appear)

•Select Folder Options

•Click the View tab and make sure Show hidden files and folders is selected under Hidden files and folders

•Next, uncheck the box next to Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)

•Then, uncheck the box next to Hide extensions for known filetypes
