Lately I’ve been seeing infections of rogue anti-viruses that are hiding people’s files in their”My Documents” folders, and warning them that there hard drive has critical error. Here are the tools I used to fix the problem:
UnHide.exe from bleepingcomputer.com: This program unhides user files and is supposed to keep system files hidden.
SuperAntiSpyware: to clean up remaining bits of malware.
AccRestore v2.0: On one system the Accessories Folder wasn’t just hidden it was deleted. I used this simple tool from Ramesh Srinivasan to fix it.
The final part is to educate users on safe browsing habits, and to offer anti-virus solutions.
I hope this has been useful in the battle against Malware.
