Hi,

I have seen all the post and used all tricks that were discussed in this board but My issue is still there. My folder and files are hidden. When i click on my drive properties it shows me 680MB used but its doesn't show me anything.. I used all the solutions that were discussed on this board but no luck at all. I guess it is a virus and i found my register but its values are ok and scan my pin drive with many antivirus softwares but nothing.

Is there anybody there who can help me and solve my issue? I will be very thankful!

Thanks

look guys i had same problem what i did was

(Go to Start --> Run, then type Regedit
2. Navigate to the registry folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHO WALL
3. Find a key called CheckedValue.
4. Double Click CheckedValue key and modify it to 1. This is to show all the hidden files.)

that should be it guys.. formating wont solve nothing on the begining cauze i tried ti 5 times and every time i get same error so good luck for all :)

hi i had the same problem where my hidden folder option never used to work and additionally my yahoo stopped working later on i had issues with opening of other drives as well like C:\ or D'\ or even a pen drive

i got my system reformated and lost all my data i thought it's better than loosing my system it worked well for two days then it came back to the same problem

i finally got rid of it with the help of combofix.exe u can find it on www.myantispyware.com

i think from what i herd this virus is being transmitted over broadband's

anyways i thought it might help
