    The infection probably hid the folders/files. If you can get to internet, download a utility "unhide" - I think it is at bleepingcomputer.com.

    Do it in safe mode with Internet if you can't do it in normal startup.

    Also - do not delete any Temporary folders, Temp folders, etc, because unhide may not find everything, and the files/folders usually end up there.
