It sounds like you are referring to various malware, viruses, trojans, and rootkits. A good antivirus program, like MS-Security Essentials, Malwarebytes, or AVGfree, will find and fix all but the rootkits. google may some free ones here.

Are you talking about a possible virus, or something you installed yourself?

Give this a try to display hidden files and folders.

1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.

2. Click the View tab.

3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.

I hope this helps!
