After a virus removal process found a number of password protected folders in PC\users\documents.  Avast says that it was unable to access the folders.  Folders include Flashplayer 11

  • When the control panel opens click on the Appearance and Personalization link.
  • Under the Folder Options category, click on Show Hidden Files or Folders.
