First step will be to run a scan with malwarebytes

https://www.malwarebytes.com/

Scan and remove the infections.


Go to run and type

regedit

Navigate to the registry folder,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\NOHIDDEN

make sure

"DefaultValue"=2

similarly

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

"DefaultValue"=2
