After finishing up with combofix and resolving a few issues, I have run into a small issue. programdata is showing now and I would like it hidden. Ive changed the settings to hide hidden folders but it is still showing up. Does anyone know how to hide this folder.

So I reinstalled combofix and after uninstalling it again, I was then able to apply the hidden attribute to the file. Dont know why it wouldnt allow it before, but the issue is resolved.

Glad to hear the issue has been resolved.

BTW, when properly uninstalling ComboFix, it will perform a variety of routines to include resetting system settings.
