I am currently removing this virus as well, as it hid all my files.

Download this file from bleeping computer:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/unhide.exe

It will unhide all your system files.

What the virus did was make all your files and folders hidden.

Here is a link to help with the virus:
