I was infected with the HDD Virus and thought I had lost everything until I came to your website and found out it was truely a virus. I have followed the steps I found and ran RKill that worked very well and then also ran MBAM which found 6 errors that are now removed.

Following along with the instructions to make my files and stuff reappear I am to download and run the unhide.exe file.
When I click on this file I get an error message saying "No Active content", there was more to this message but thats all I can remember without seeing it and I am at work right now and will update with the full message when I get home if you need the whole message to understand what I meant.

I also get the same message when typing in an address in the address bar and trying to click on any file to download.

So currently I am stuck again and I do not have all my icons and files back without running this tool.

Any suggestions or help. Thank you.

Press windows+R key and type

%temp% and click ok

If you have a folder called SMTMP ,copy it to a safe location

Press Windows+ R key and type

cmd and click ok,now run this command

attrib -h c:\*.* /s /d

Allow it to run,this should unhide your files



Launch it.Click on change parameters-Select TDLFS file system

Click on "Scan".Please post the LOG report(log file should be in your C drive)

Please download GMER from here(doesnot work on 64 bit OS)


Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.

GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic Full Scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)

If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
