    I am running windows me on a home computer, and recently deleted some suspected spyware in C:\windows\Downloaded Program Files. A few days later i noticed that nothing could be viewed in this folder when in explorer. I right-clicked the folder on the left pane and the hidden attributes section was greyed out, but said I had 18 files and 2 folders within it. My folder options are set to show hidden files and folders, and show system files. I then deleted the whole folder, knowing windows would replace it, which it did, but the hidden attributes section is still geyed out.

    Anyone got any ideas how to solve this?
