Show hidden files corrupted by the virus

Viruses are really pain in the ass. Some virus like sality.xx series corrupts the windows explorer mechanism. It blocks the explorer process, changes windows registry and you can not see the hidden files by using folder option->view->show hidden files or using the command attrib -h in the command prompt.

But there is another way to see hidden files using Registry Editor. Just follow the steps below-

  1. Goto Start menu -> Run.
  2. Type regedit and press Enter.
  3. Find HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Explorer -> Advanced .
  4. There is a Hidden on the right side. Right click to Hidden and click Modify.
  5. If  Value data is 1= visible hidden  folder , 2= hide hidden folder.
  6. Change Value data to 1 then click Ok.

Now you can see all of yours hidden files/ folders. ;D
