C: drive hidden at cmd prompt

Recommended Posts

"Windows Recovery" malware got me, tonight. MBAM took care of the problem, but I lost ALL of my icons/files/pictures AND my c: drive.

I figured out how to "unhide" the icons and files via Properties. When I go to the command prompt to make sure there is no left over malware and type "dir", there is nothing to diplay. I get, "Volume in drive C: has no label". then it displays a serial number.

I know the files/programs are there, because I can do CD to Windows or any other program that I KNOW is on the drive. It just won't display any of the files/programs.

How do I UNHIDE the files/programs on my C: drive? (via DOS commands)

Thanks for any help.
