I was infected with the Windows Recovery virus. I think I'm now virus free after following the your removal instructions. (Thank you, thank you, thank you Malwarebytes people.) But I was left with the hidden files, not necessarily a problem since I had checked "show hidden files and folders" in the Explorer. But I disliked how it left the icons grayed out on the desktop. So I unchecked the hide file attribute switches, but not just on the shortcut files, but on all files on the hard drive. Now I'm concerned that some files should have been left hidden. Are there any files that need to be rehidden? I'm fairly tech savvy and doubt that I'd mess with any files that shouldn't be touched, but I thought I should check with a pro.
