So I recently had an infection and after I have any virus/malware, I get really paranoid so if this is actually a really stupid question, I am sorry.

I was looking through my (C:) drive, and noticed some folders were on Hidden. Not all of them, just some. Is this supposed to be normal, or is it a virus? Because I know for certain I did not put those on Hidden myself.

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium if that helps.

Thank you!

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
