I had a rootkit - Win32/Olmarik - according to eset. I used an eset removal tool to get rid of it. I ran Malwarebytes originally and removed some viruses. I then did a complete scan with AVG 2012 including a rootkit scan and it found nothing. I then ran the eset removal tools for Win32/Olmarik and it was removed.
Files and folders were hidden. I ran unhide (much better than using attrib!) and got the files and folders viewable again.
However, if you try to double click a folder or open something like the control panel, it's window never displays. If you start task manager you'll see the folder or control panel program is running. It's just not displaying. My guess is that some registry settings are mucked up.
Has anyone seen this and know a cure for it?
