Try this 1

Follow the below instructions.

  • Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and press Enter.
  • Here I assume your pendrive drive letter as G:
  • Enter this command :
    attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*
  • You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and paste it.
  • Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.
  • Now check for your files.

  • Click on Start --> Run --> type control folders and press Enter.
  • "Folder Options" will be opened. Click on the "View" tab.
  • Now select the option "Show hidden files, folders or drives" and uncheck the check box "Hide protected operating system files" --> Click on "OK" button.
  • Now look for your hidden files in your drive.
  • [Note : Later undo the changes you have made by once again going to "Folder Options" --> Click on "View" tab and click on "Restore Defaults" button --> Click on "OK".]

3) After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link :
