The Windows Repair Virus will alter the way files are displayed on your computer, specifically hiding files in folders. Windows Repair Virus achieves this “no files in folder” method by displaying another empty folder and not the intended directory or setting all files in the folder as hidden. The virus can add the hidden attribute to the files in the directory, so that you cannot see them. This is done to make it seem like there is corruption on your hard drive that is causing your files to not be displayed. The main reason for Windows Repair Virus to set all files to hidden, is to fool the PC user into believing that their computer is infected and must use Windows Repair Virus to ‘remedy’ the situation.
