Hi, I have a windows 7 machine that was hit by a Trojan virus that hid some folders that are causing the virus scanner to skip them. Usually if you go into windows folder options and choose show hidden files, and unhide protected operating system files all files on the system are visible. On this system the c:\ProgramData and c:\Users\XXXXX\AppData directories are all completely hidden in a way I've not seen before and I believe this is why the virus scanner is not scanning in those directories. The only way to clean it was to browse to the directory by typing the full path "C:\Users\328362\AppData\Roaming\Wucu" in windows explorer and right click the file and scan for threats. So I was able to clean it but the folders are still hidden in windows. Anyone see this before or know of a fix? Thanks!
