The issue is caused by a virus
I have been seeing a mass amount of cpu @ my shopr with this issue
Its a hidden file virus under autorun.ini and its a trojan
It puts out all sorts of bad files like 0wk2.com, kavo.exe, tavo.exe 1i.com, njc.com
What you need to do is look @ the hidden files from comand prompt by entering the drive you want to scan c:
then type attrib -h this will show you the current hidden files for tha drive copy the file names down (copy paste on notpad) the download tweak ui power tools from microsoft install the stop the auto runs w tweak ui download kill box and enter the hidden files that you found in kill box theis will delet them and stoping the auto runs will stop it from reloading the only ones you dont want to delet or ntdetect.ini, ntuser, bootmgr, pagefile.sys andhiberfile.sys also go to the reg and search and delet tany keys found relating to the viruses i will be posting a better step by step directions later but if your smart enough you should figuer it out

I have no hidden files and folders on my computer..But the option "Show hidden files and folders" in folder options is not showing up....I would really like to find out what has caused that option to go away.....
Also, hard drive space on my computer is drying up like hell...i should have 20 gb free space but it shows only 10 gb free space...Are these 2 problems related.
Can you help me with these problems..?

Any sort of help will be deeply appreciated...

Thanks

I have two hidden directories that I can't see anymore. Windows explorer "Tools/view" doesn't show the option to show or hide hidden files. I get a completely different windows. I might have a virus.
I followed your instructions
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHO WALL
I found the directory and subdirectories but there is no "Hidden" subdirectory over there.
Could you please help? Thanks

hello mate I'm pretty sure it's a virus, so my advice is that you format completely your pc. I might be wrong but scan your pc before formatting.

cheers

How come ??

It can be only a virus.. it may be an error on drive C:\

Are you sure you've followed the following steps :

The documents you want to view your hidden files - Tools - Folder Options - View - View hidden files?

If this dont work, it might be really a virus, try scanning your drives.

Hi sourabh

I have Vista

I got the same problem. But my "dont show hidden files and folder" option is unchecked. However, still I cannot see my hidden files....

Also the solution you have mentioned is not working. I have Vista and when I go to the mentioned folder, I do not find the registry named "Checked Value".....

However I have a "checked value" file / registry in the folder HIDDEN which resides in the parent folder of SHOW ALL

please help me as I have some important files hidden and i cannot access them now...
please help me
please help me

Guys i have also got same problem i can't see them anymore and when i enter in tools, folder options so as to click and see my hidden folders...it returns back to "do not show" any clue????..

Also ,u "regedit" command is not working in "RUN".. please give me the possible solution

king- May 12, 2008 06:35AM
it may be a due to a virus i have also faced this problem. Due to this i was totally restricted to access to my regedit, taskmgr and all other "exe" files to open from the run command and when i try to do this my system shuts down . It was due to a virus called " Brontox " . Go to google and search an antivirus for the brontox and try that.


Thanks
