    Is there a virus that moves and hides your document folders?

      After this laptop got infected, now, I found that many sub-folders were not in my Document folders anymore. If I try to search from Window Explorer, the folder and the files would appear and be listed in the search result, and I even could open them, but, I could not see them in the Explorer List.

       

      Is there any known virus that is doing that?

       

      Today I found another folder is missing again while I'm not moving or hidding any folders?

       

      Could this be the work of virus?

       

      Help, please!

       

      Thanks,

          OK, after posted this message, I went to search on Google and came across the posting on this site. Indeed, now I know what has happened to my system when I got those Fake Antivirus Program.

           

          I have scanned my this laptop using the newly installed TP as well as Antimalwarebytes. I hope after this fix to unhide all the files that have been hidden, no more problem causing by this Fake Antivirus Program.
