So you got hit by a virus that decided to hide all of you data. You did all the steps to clean it up but all your documents are feared missing.

Try this.

open a command prompt: start –> in the search field type cmd and right click on it for administrator. In the famous command prompt love type:

attrib –S –H –R C:\*.* /D /S

This will unhide every thing on the C: . Now if you want to narrow that scope down feel free.

Remember don’t fear you Windows PC let Unix Nerds do that.
