Default All files are hidden

Hey guys, just got rid of a new version of the "Windows Recovery" trojan.. everything seems to be gone but it has somehow changed every single file on my computer to hidden. Of course when i check "show hidden files and folders" everything appears again. Is there a way to change them all back? Searched the forum and I couldnt find anything. Ty in advance.

Default Re: All files are hidden

After 3 hours of messing around, i finally found a solution. If anyone is having this problem after a virus has changed all your files and folders to hidden, click start, run, type cmd press enter. Now enter this command

attrib -s -h -r c:/*.* /s /d

Hope it helps.
