Perhaps the files were hidden by the viruses?

Tools -> folder options -> check "show hidden files"

It's located on windows explorer menu bar. If you still couldn't find it, try pressing alt button to show up the menu bar.

OK, so I got a virus in my computer few days ago. I couldn't do anything, since all programs seemed to be wiped out from my start menu..so I just shot it off, went to someone who helped me to get back my driver C (He kinda repaired the driver before logging into windows, and according to him, restored the data that was there 2-3 days before the virus)

So, my laptop is working fine BUT all files and documents are gone, so all programs (even programs I installed myself) are there..but no files (words, pdf, pics...etc etc)

The funny thing is that the laptop still thinks the files are there. So, I can not create a new folder called My Documents, because it already exists!!

I can not save pics as xxxx because that name already exists...even when "favving" web pages on internet, they already are on my favorite list..

so, is there a chance/way to get back the files and documents since the computer think they are still there??

Best regards

Assalaam aleykom

I still have no solution for this and would appreciate all help :)

And the problem is not only with the interenet files, its ALL files in my laptop

thanx already

Yaa you got right answer that ur infected by a spyware or adware, does this voice comes when a browser is open or all the time even ur doing nothging, sometime spyware installs a genuine app so AV will not detect it. So does it comes when ur browsing or all the time and which operating system ru using.

it happens almost every time i log into facebook. sometimes, it seems to be triggered by a "congrats uve won" ad on FB which has a grey background and yellow smiley face.

and im using windows 7

I think it's a spam.. Go on your firefox and add this plugin ..

Same thing if you use Chrome..

So you've done what ali said before ? tool -> hide folders ?

If nothing happened, do this:

Tools > Folder Options > View

then uncheck Hide protected folders ..

I think this is the more accurate instruction. Perhaps i forgot the details, because i don't use windowz$ anymore.

Sorry friends couldn't check here as stuck in some personal problems :mellow:

As far i can see dear virus changes the attrib of ur files so unhiding them from folder option wouln't show them up, so there 2 options either manually change attrib through command or by utiliy.

Here is a small uliity which is very easy to use to it unhide hides for u its freeware.

protecting my video and pics files from viruses

Perhaps you could protect your pics/vidz from viruses, but what if someone steal your laptop at school for example ?

I think the best solution would be to save all your data on an external hard drive ...

There is very simple and easy way to do that use winzip or winrar and compress it with password protection and encyrt name this way no one can unlock it or see what inside it and virus can't infect them (btw they can delete or hide them but thats usual with every system file.

Salaamm,

I need urgent help please. So I wanted to dowload the programme Windows Live Moviemaker. I searched for it on the internet and found a download link that is safe and free. So I've started the download, I ended up with Softomic downloading programme, and then apparently the download of Window Live Moviemaker was finished. So i tried to look for the programme on my laptop but I can't find it anywhere to open it.. Should I download it again?

I also tried to delete the Softomic thing but it keeps saying i can't delete it because it is openen elsewhere in exe. file or something..

WHAt IS THAT??!!?? lol

I hate these stuff man, anyway if anyone knows an answer to this, would be muchos appreciated.

(salam)

on your keyboard : alt + ctrl + suppr > you will get a list of all process running on your computer, find something called softonic.exe and end it.

And now you can delete it:


  • Open Programs and Features by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Programs and Features.

  • Select a program, and then click Uninstall

It seems programm is running in background, so firstly to uninstall it normal way. (as cendrillon suggested)

Control panel>add or remove progam > Softonic (search for softonic or similar thing)

if its not there try to find it in ur start menu.

if its uninstall from there u r good to go.

So tell me know if its not there or unable to uninstall so can find different solution.

Note:Never dowload software from these sites always try to download for orginal company site

like : Windows Movie maker is windows app so get it from microsoft (try to google it)

Salaam,

I got a problem recently. I have a Toshiba A200 Laptop and it's Windows Vista.

When I shut down the computer, it logs off and goes to the shut down screen like normal.

Then some blue error screen comes up (with all sorts of letters and numbers) and rather than shutting down, it restarts the laptop.

I then get taken to the login screen and have to shut down from there by clicking that red button on the bottom right:

Windows%20Vista%20Clear%20Main%20Login.jpg

So I want to know why my laptop isn't shutting down normally and how to fix this.

Jazak Allah.
