Hugo Lee,

Download/run RKill:


Download/Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

If you need further assistance on how to run the above programs, or something does not work, post back, and will expand further.

Looks as if you are in the 'Virus a Week' you use an AntiVirus?

In order to remove this virus (System Repair) for free (at no cost) I can recommend you to contact GridinSoft Trojan Killer at the site Go to the section "Need help" and write them a ticket. They are issuing the free trial activation codes for 15 days, without the need to purchase the program. You may find more information about this virus (System Repair) at this site:

If you do some research, you will find information on the issues that come with System Repair. Among them, it will make some folders display no contents, or display a different folder's contents.

It does this by adding the +H, or hidden, attribute to the files, and then changes certain settings so that you cannot view hidden or system files.

Once the System Repair processes are terminated (with RKill, then Malwarebytes’ is run, etc.), you can enable the setting to view hidden files, and be able to see files and folders again.

Another issue is that some variants of System Repair are installing the TDSS Rootkit. That is the reason for running TDSSKiller.

You should be able to remove System Repair with guidance provided in the forum, and without being persuaded to purchase any software.
