I recently had malware that we got rid of and when we got rid of it defragmenter started to work again and most of the weird stuff going on stopped. However, all my documents, now have .doc or .txt visible after them (I know that they're there, just in the past have been invisible and now aren't). I'm not sure if any other files that may have been corrupted have been fixed. I'd like to fix it so I no longer see the .doc or .txt visible anymore and if anything else is still corrupted - fix it.
Thank you.

Open "My Computer"
Click "Tools" at the top of the window that loads
In the "Tools" menu click "Folder Options"
When the "Folder Options" window loads click the "View" tab
Once you get to that tab, you need to make sure that there is a check in the box labeled "Hide extensions for known file types"
Then hit "Apply" and then hit "Apply to All Folders"

That should still be fixed. If you notice any other problems let us know.

Actually, there is another problem with my documents. Many are being renamed still after opening, and if try to open can't or gibberish. the renamed parts usually start with ~$L or ~$LS right now, can't remember the others as deleted since I couldn't access them.
