Hi folks, this is my first post here, and i'm hoping someone can help.
I recently got hit by a trojan presenting it's self as Windows 7 Repair....sounds a lot like the Windows 7 restore virus that's been mentioned. I was wondering if someone could confirm the remedies are the same as well.
McAffee didn't stop it, but i managed to kill it, and remove the registry entries, and using "unhide.exe" i got files visible again, but with two differences that i've not seen anyone mention.
The start menu>all programs....almost everything came up as showing an empty file rather than the programs, despite them being there.
No matter what i do, i can't see the Control panel Adminitrative programs, either from the start menu, or from control panel itself.
Any clues would be very welcome.
Variations on the same theme I suspect.

Also search there for their Unhide tool.
