Double click on locker.bat & put in your password.

You won't find the hidden folder if it's been hidden by third-party privacy software.

You must run the locking software to access the folder.

"Have you enabled show hidden files and folders in explorer?"

That will have no effect on folders & files which have been hidden with third-party privacy software.

Fair point “phil22”.

I’ve no experience with the software under discussion, and it more a long shot on my part.

Well, if it's really called locker.bat, there's nothing preventing arpits14 from opening the batch file in Notepad, and pasting the contents of the batch script here.

Phill22 & trvlr might both be right, if a third party software hid the files, then you probably wouldn't be able to unhide them in Windows Explorer.

However, a .bat file isn't software, it's a file used to run commands and in this case the .bat file may just be turning on the hidden attribute in Windows.

If THX's suggestion is valid,then will that bat be shown in the msconfig, and thus possible to disable it, stop it running?

It depends on what starts the batch file, but the question's moot. Batch files aren't persistent. They run, do their work, and stop. Sometimes they run, crash out, and stop. Either way, they're not sophisticated enough to, say, hook the Windows kernel to hide files like a rootkit.
