Working on a badly infected system -- HP with WinXP Home. Cleaned it up as much as practible with the likes of
SpyBot S&D, Ad-Aware, Ewido, AVG. Lots os stuff removed. But still running real slow. The manual cleanup is being hampered by inability to change folder options to reveal hidden files/directories. Just will not change, in normal or safe mode. Give it up with a Ops re-install or is there a way to reset folder options to respond to changes?
