✔ Best Answer
Lets see what we can find.

1: Download & run Unhide
To run Unhide, simply download it to your desktop and then double-click on the Unhide icon. The program will open a black box and start making the files on your fixed disks visible again. Please note, that this program will not unhide removable drives like flash cards and usb drives as the FakeHDD rogues do not target these types of drives. Once it has finished, the program will display a Windows alert stating that your files have been restored. You should then reboot your computer for all of the settings to go into effect.
Copy & Paste the contents of the log. Let me know if it doesn't produce a log please.

2: Reboot

3: Run RogueKiller

You didn't list your system specs, which anti-virus program you're using, or the name of the virus. You should temporarily disable System Restore (all restore points will be lost) & run your scans from Safe Mode. Once you're 100% certain the infection is gone, re-enable System Restore again & immediately create a restore point.

Particularly stubborn viruses may have to be removed from outside the Windows environment by using a bootable Rescue disc, they are plenty to choose from:
