  1. okay I did it the first way although it’s been a month or so already so I don’t know if time will affect anything anyways the files in my document and on my desktop returned but everything inside the all programs list is still gone including the command prompt so I’m unable to figure out what to do for that and also the stuff is still there because one of the missing programs is my Microsoft word 2010 and I have a file and I’m still able to open it so they’re still there so do you have any advice that can help me? if not thanks for reading this at least.

  2. Thank you so very much! Plugged my phone into virus infected computer. All the folders got hidden, beside buncha trojans bean transfered to my phone. Got rid of trojans but i couldnt figure it out how to unhide my folders. I could only access them trough command line so i knew they are not deleted.

  3. So i did the 2nd option (the command prompt) and my files are still hidden. When I entered the text it said denied. Should I was able to reveal some files and I managed to get the important ones down on an external. Should I just reformat my hard drive??
