Im afraid your PC is infected with a virus. Try to retrieve and backup your files then reformat your PC. That's the only way I guess to solve your problem permanently.

If you can not access your Folders using File Explorer, you can open them thru good ole DOS. Assuming you know basic DOS operations.


Here's an example how:
1. Open DOS prompt (Fig.1)
2. Lets say your hidden Folder is in drive C. So At Command prompt, go to drive C root directory by typing CD\ then hit ENTER.
3. For example your hidden Folder is MY DATA and you know you have a file there with an extension .ppf
4. Type dir/s *.ppf then hit ENTER. (Fig.1)
5. Copy the Directory C:\Documents and Settings\Mel\My Documents\My Data (Fig.2) into your Windows File Explorer Address Bar as shown in Fig.3. The hit ENTER.
6. Now you can retrieve all your files. Back them up. Reformat your PC.

I hope this will help.
