Hi.

I recently got infected by the RavMonE.exe trojan. I've used Ad-Aware, and everything seems fine now. But there is still a problem not fixed: When I open My Computer / Windows Exprorer, hidden files don't show up. Then I should open "Tools > Folder Options | View tab" and enable hidden files there, right? I've tried that, but it still doesn't work. Hidden files on my disk remain hidden.

The weird thing is, when i open the Folder Options dialog, it just keeps removing my Hidden Files setting over and over again. Here's a screenshot:

Weird, huh? I think the trojan is still lurking in my computer's memory i.e. My virus scanner did not remove it completely. So, anyone could help...? (Sorry for my quirky English, I'm not an English speaker)

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

This is a serious infection. Below is some info collected from the web.
RavMonE.exe virus propagates via mass storage devices, so run a antivirus scan on any external hard drives, digital cameras with removable media, or USB flash drives you connected recently to an infected PC.
Once a computer is infected, the virus allows unauthorized users to gain access to the computer's contents. This poses a security risk for the infected machine, as the attacker can steal personal information, and use the computer as an access point into an internal network.
