Although I have used combofix in t/past, I won't ever use it again unless I HAVE to.
I was looking everywhere to find info about protected operating sys. folders after using combofix. My C:\Boot, C:\Config.Msi, C:\MSOCache and one C:\hp folder will not hide, no matter how folder options are set. I deleted $RECYCLE.BIN and it re-created/fixed it. I keep folder settings on show hidden files, folders & drives. I keep hide protected OS files ticked. I found almost t/same exact problem on a page titled "I am seeing files that should be hidden but aren't hidden" - Dated June-10th-14th-2014 ....username is liorshwa, 'Mako', moderator from 'Malware Response Team'.

Any and all help would be well appreciated, thanks,
