Restore hidden files, harmful side effects of the virus

Updated on May 1, 2011

It caused enormous damage in today's computer viruses although we have tools with which to combat and eliminate it effectively.

Much has been said about this but is not calculated the so-called side effects that leave us, the reason is that a blind or hide and go unnoticed for many viruses change our records and other Windows configuration files which prevents us from seeing the hidden files and therefore identification.

The side effect even if the virus comes after the delete and do not leave trace of them, many files and folders remain hidden, the only way to know that there still is enabled in Folder Options "Display files, folders and drives hidden" and uncheck the box "Hide protected files ...." If this were possible there would be no problems but is that the virus changed the registry branch for so that we can not make any of these actions.

Many users think after disinfection, the most logical that the virus will delete files (can be valuable. Doc,. Xlsm, etc.). And in fact those files are still there but invisible to them.

Consequently many users formatted and clean their pen drives or flash memory without knowing they are definitely and deliberately deleting files so valued.

The solution to this problem is quite simple s, is only restoring the attributes that have been modified by the virus on the device, it can be done in two ways either manually or automatically on the network, this method recommended for those who do not possess experience working with commands.
