✔ Best Answer
The files are still here
This is a virus that seems to have many names on my computer it was named
26c4f883.exe
I don't know how it works but you can get rid of it by
1) Note all the .lnk names Because on Command On line you can still get the folders by giving the order CD FolderName and if you make bad one of these orders you still could get access to your files provided you remember your folder name
2) Delete all the .lnk
3) Give the following order on command on Line, where e: is the infected drive
Attrib /S /D e:\* -H -S
this will let you have your folder back
