Show Files Hidden Attributes

Some of files hidden that infected by virus can't we access, because the default attributes of files/folders are hidden, the files/folders aren't missing.

So here're some steps for unhide the attributes of files/folders:
  • Go to Start > Run, and then type "cmd"
  • On the command prompt window, type the location of the file hidden, e.g. "c:", "d:", etc
  • To see the files/folders with hidden attributes type dir /ah
  • Unhide files/folders by type the whole name plus the extension, type:
attrib [name of file/folder] -r -a -s -h
    Example: attrib photo.jpg -r -a -s -h
    For the folders with 6 characters above, type the first of 6 (six) characters then "~1"
    Example the folder named "networksystem" in directory c:, type
    c:\attrib networ~1 -r -a -s -h
    • Check your files/folders, it should be not hidden again
