^attrib should work as above...but you can deal with folders with spaces...also, you will need to use /s /d if using *.*. =)
1. Go to the start menu, and then 'run'; or press WindowsKey+r. This will open the Run dialogue.
2. Inside the line, type cmd. This will open Microsoft's command prompt.
3. Type in the drive letter of your USB drive... Assuming it is the drive in your screenshot above, type 'G:'. This will make you go to the G:\
4. Type 'cd\'. This will make sure you are in the root directory of your drive.
5. Type 'dir /ah'. This will list all hidden files and folders in the root directory.
6. Now you have 2 choices...
a. If you want to unhide all files and folders in your hard drive, type: attrib -s -h * /s /d
b. If you want to unhide a single folder, type: attrib -s -h "NBA 2K9" (with the double inverted commas).
can you still access the folder options under the tools menu? if it's disabled, try this.
well, if your regedit command is disabled, try this
navigate to user configuration / administrative templates / system
there should be an entry to reactivate the regedit command
there should be an entry that you can toggle the value (if it's 0, make it 1, or vice versa)
if task manager is disabled, you can try this registry address instead
there should be an entry that you can toggle the value
these were the three things that were disabled when i was attacked by a virus via usb. So i had to manually reactivate them.
Oh, and before anything else. Once you have access to your task manager. Find the process that is causing the anomaly, but before you kill it, try to find where it is located in your windows folder.
after that, you can terminate the process, and shift+delete the actual file on its location.
thank you lisa, hesperus and girlcelly
