Yes i have tried everything even giving my computer a restructive restore.
At one point the option was fine and the next hour the problem was there again.
I read on other forums that once that virus has been launched it basiclly leaves perminant damage as in even though iv re-booted the comp it stil won't reset the registry back to normal
Please if you can find that url, please...
thanks

p.s I unhid my folders as soon as i found them by searching that perticular folder.
