Unread postby luckyguy457321 » September 26th, 2009, 5:35 am

I think this virus passes on by hardrives and usb
on my admin account the system folders and hidden files are enabled
i was in my documents and their was some hidden files in it
After plugging in my flash drive the hidden folders dissapeared
And i when to control panel to check to see if the hidden files in the folder option was enabled
I tried to anavle it and it looked like it did but when i check to see if the hidden folders are there they aren't
I went back to check the control panel and they were once again disabled
don't know if it is a virus but i'd like to be abel to re enable the hidden files and folders
the same happened with my friends computer
He has subbmitted a smple to McAfee
