File Recovery is an fake application which poses as an computer performance optimization program. Once File Recovery has been installed on the computer, it will hide files on the computer to make the user think that the hard drive has been damaged. After hiding the files, it will provide the user with a fake scan and proceed to bombard the user with warnings about system issues. The files which File Recovery have hidden can be viewed by turning on hidden files.
Once the hidden files are found, it is best to back up the files and set these files back to normal viewing. File Recovery should be removed and the hidden files restore back to regular viewing mode. On a positive note, File Recovery can be removed for free with Malwarebytes Antimalware. Malwarebytes Antimalware can be downloaded from the link below.
Second Option: System Restore
System restore is an excellent option because it will roll back the computer to a previous date. In this case, it can roll back to when the files weren’t hidden on the computer.
