It appears two of our workstations got hit with a virus. It made it seem like our project files located on our file server had been removed. From windows explorer we see prjoect folder shortcuts instead of the project folders and the shortcuts pointed to a drive that did not exist. By resetting folder view options on our workstations, allowing hidden and system files to be seen, we could see our folders on the file server. I ran unhide.exe on one workstation to see if that would resolve the issue and it did not. The file attribute for the files on our windows server have been set to hidden. Your unhide.exe is for windows xp and windows 7. How do I resolve this issue on my server ?

Hello, this appears to be a 0access rootkit. We can get it off. DO NOT run a Temp file or Regostry cleaner or you will lose those files.

We need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run (it may not on a 64 bit system) skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
