  2. Simo says:

    Bei mir ist der Unhider keine Anwendung…. Es ist nur eine Datei… wie kann ich ihn starten?

  3. Simo says:

    Ok…. habe ihn einfack in Unhider.exe umbenannt…
    jetzt hat er funktioniert! Danke vielmals!

  4. Mary says:

    I can’t thank you enough for this download. I have been trying for days to restore my files and pictures. This worked perfectly. Thank you so much!

  5. Tony says:

    Помощ! Свалих програмата от линка, но компютърът ми не я чете. Някой знае ли какво се прави?

  6. Tony says:

    Справих се! Просто го преименувах с разширението ехе

  7. Joe says:

    You guys just saved about ten years of work for me Thanks a million

  8. JAMES BAIRD says:

    WOW 1 CLICK AND THE B*****D thing was gone all my files and pics back
    A million thanks to you all

  9. PJ says:

    it does work… I was leary at first cause it seems like a new offer but did it anyway. There was no message saying that it was working though. However, all my files began to appear beginning with restore of my internet toolbar. THANKS!

  10. Terry says:

    I have tried opening the application to unhide my files, but get a message saying it is not a valid exe. I am using Windows 2000

  11. riz says:

    Really many thanks for this. Wa trying for 2 days and this just one click did it all. thanks a lot.

    Did it also remove the virus?

  12. Melody says:

    I cannot thank you enough! I’d been trying to get back my files for weeks and this worked so quickly, I didn’t even realise it had worked until I checked my folders.

  13. Marty says:

    Thanks you, Thank you. I have been working on this for hours and you solved all my issues in minutes. This was great.

  14. Mike S says:

    Many thanks. I got all my stuff back…..Send me info on your products!

  15. massimo says:

    I have tried opening the application to unhide my files, but it doesn’t start (nothing happened) even if I try to run the program with administrator rights. I have windows 7.
    Can you help me please?
    Thank you!!!

  16. kachelray says:

    Same problem as massimo. Nothing happens, even when I right click to run with administrator rights. Help?

  17. billinfl says:

    Thank you so very much! I accdently downloaded Windows Restore, hidden in an email that looked like it was from UPS. finally got rid of Windows Restore, used your download and all of my desktops popped back up! Amazing!

  18. Diana says:

    I was able to get all my files back but now I have to right click on a folder and open to get the correct contents. When I double click on the folder they all appear to have the same contents. Any way to fix this?

  19. Whitney says:

    This worked PERFECTLY! I am pretty good at being able to pwn most viruses and spywares when they pop up, but I was having such a hard time finding all of my missing files, and programs that were completely missing from my “all programs” area. No notepad, no calculator, no pictures, no downloaded files.. nothing! Only my programs that were in the x86 file were untouched, but even AVG had it’s files wiped out. Within a few minutes this program had everything back!! It’s like magic! I was worried it would be a “upgrade this program to restore your stuff we found!” type of thing, like the others I tried today. But it wasn’t, and it works like a ninja.. you don’t even notice.

    But remember~!
    If nothing is happening when you try to run the application, then you need to right click on it in your downloads window that pops up when you click the link, select open file location, right click on the file named “unhinder.exe”, and run as administrator. Just go on doing what you normally do, check emails, FB, whatever, then check your files in a few minutes and they should be back!

    You guys are life savers!! Thanks again!

  20. gpzeta says:

    Grazie, con windows seven basta aggiungere l’estensione .exe al file scaricato e lanciarlo come amministratore, non avvisa che sta lavorando e che ha terminato, ma in qualche minuto ripara tutto,
    funziona benissimo

  21. KS says:

    This is amazing. I had almost lost all my files/folders and got it back by just running the file provided. After running this file, go to Folder option and check Show Hidden files. Virus had hide everything on my laptop.

    Thanks a MILLION….

  22. Stefani says:

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    and my kids thank you!
    I’ve been repairing this virus attack all day. This was the last piece to fix. Yeah!
    It was so easy, and it worked perfectly.

  23. tom says:

    Beyond my words to say thanks. First time to get attack. WIN7 didn’t work and I can only restore my PC to an earlier time but I lost all my personal files including little girl’s all photos.
    So disappointed and begin to serach help online. Trojan-killer did such a wonderful job to help users like me. I got my files back and do backup immediately. Thanks again!!!!!!

  24. Stéphane says:

    Un grand merci pour avoir partagé ce logiciel. J’étais au bord de la crise de nerfs 🙁
    Tous mes fichiers sont réapparus

  25. Boyd says:

    This was awesome!! It worked like a charm. Thank you for the fix! Just incredible..

    inicia>> todos os programas >> jogos >> vazio

    alguma ideia do q se passa?

  31. Michel says:

    Même souci, je suis sur windows 7, j’ai téléchargé l’application, et lorsque je double clique dessus/ouvre en tant qu’administrateur/grand administrateur rien ne se passe, les fichiers restent introuvables.

  32. sam says:

    it did not work i download the program i clik run but nothing happen

  33. T-Rav says:

    Wow, I couldn’t figure it out for the life of me, and now things are back to normal. Thank you so much!

  34. mARCO says:

    Non riesco a farlo funzionare senza i diritti di amministartore.

  35. Kristen says:

    I need help! I got rid of the “Windows 7 Recovery” virus, and used the “unhider” to get my files back, but my programs still aren’t there. It has the folders for the programs, but they’re all empty. Help! What do I do?

  36. girlishmoon says:

    Thanks millions!!!

    Windows security essentials detected trojan yesterday. I acted on the prompt to remove trojan, but it had already attacked.

    Went through this fake defragmentaion thing which forced me to system restore.

    AFter restore no more fake defrag but all desktop files were gone.

    This has saved my day.

    For those that ran the program and nothing happened, just wait a while. Depending on how many files were hidden, it might take a while (for me up to 5 mins) for them to all show up again.

    Many thanks again!

  37. leno says:

    Thanks SO Much! I have been studying for finals and haven’t used my computer for three days. I got back home today and tried to use it and it turns out my mom downloaded something and gave me this horrible virus that made all my stuff dissapear. you saved me the tons of important work I have done and saved on my computer. thanks. thanks. thanks again.

  38. Brandon says:

    Thanks a million, this was definitely a blessing!!!!

  39. Ivan Pua says:

    My laptop owes you its life, thank you so much.

  40. mark says:

    Thanks for this restored all the pics of my family – lifesaver.

  41. Melissa says:

    This worked but I have the same problem as Kristin. I searched for files by name and found them in the list. But if I open the folder containing the file, it’s empty. If I right-click the file, I can open it.

    How do I get them back completely?

  42. Hugh says:

    that windows restore seems to enter your computer via java script, the root of all digital evil…

    anyway, no prompt that it started working and was leery after downloading and running but i always forget that 200 gb takes awhile to restore =\

    I first noticed that the files were still in the computer when i saw that even though everything was ‘gone’, my hard drive was still as full as it was prior

    the main points being: THANK YOU for this ungodly fix, and THANK YOU for not being like those other d*ckish other ‘fixes’ who charge $30-50 for a system repair; you’re helping people everywhere -salutes-

  43. Matthiazz says:

    Ik heb dit geprobeert en ik heb al mijn bestanden vanop mijn bureaublad terug waarvoor dank. maar ik zit nog met een probleem. al mijn bibliotheken zijn weg en deze krijg ik niet trg :s maar mijn C-schijf is nog half vol en in verkenner vind ik al mijn bestanden nog wel. Hebben jullie een idee hoe ik deze bestanden terug kan krijgen? alvast bedankt

  44. JC says:

    Un millon de Gracias !!

    Merci beaucoup, c’est génial

  55. mark says:

    THANK YOU THANK YOU! I was about to have a heart attack when it seemed everything was wiped off my external hard drive due to some crappy virus attack. I stopped the attack but everything eas missing. But the total gigs vs used gigs had not changed so I figured stuff wasn’t deleted, just hidden. Months of work were saved! Note for users, no screen pops up when it launches. It just gets right to work and your folders re-appaear after a short while.

I am soo happy there was a program to restore all my programs, thank you!! All you do is run click run and then search through your libraries and it is soo great when you see all the files are back! I’m glad they were just hidden and not taken away and there is something to find them again!

  82. aly says:

    Thank You! I am writing a 20 page paper and was unable to find any docs. Now they’re back!!

  83. merlinthehammer says:

    Can only reiterate what others are saying – two years worth of stuff which I feared had gone down the pan – recovered painlessly by trojan-killer in 20 seconds flat.
    What a huge relief!!

  84. Molly says:

    Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! HOWEVER, there is still nothing on the left side of my start menu except Internet Explorer and a lot of the things under “All Programs” appear to be “empty.” In particular, my Microsoft Word is missing. Any thoughts?

    THANK YOU!! I was freaking when all my college assignments were hidden, so happy to have them back.

  90. Ray says:

    I ran the unhider.exe on my XP system and most of the folders reappeared. All the contents of the folders in “All Programs” are still missing. Most of the programs cannot be started without manually finding the program and adding the shortcut to the proper location.
    Is there any automated way to fix this problem?

  91. Ernesto says:

    I fucking love you

  92. Amy says:

I love the person who creat this! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! This was the second time I lost all of my pics and important documents. Maybe this time I will learn to back them up. I would not hesitate to try this. You will be pleasantly suprised how well and easy it works. You don’t have to do a thing except run the application.

    This is my problem:
    One time i downloaded a file in the net which happen to have a virus in it. I tried to clean it using Avira and system restore a day earlier and it successfully restored but what i’ve noticed is that all my folders created become empty, and those folders contains all of my photos and important files.

    I just want to recover all those lost files…

    Please help me…

    Thank You! 🙂

  127. Peter says:

    The unhide solved my data disappearance problems but I have still lost some programs one I had to uninstall (Familytreemaker)and re-install.
    I have also found that people are getting SPAM emails from me “re: just look” I assume that this is associated with the one that clobbered my files.
    So far still apparently got a problem, any ideas please?

  128. El Mad says:

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you….i got all my files back thank you sooo much

  129. Tony says:

    Ok for anyone that had a problem with this working on Win 7 64 bit here is what i did. I couldn’t get it to work, i watched a video that said to download something called restore.exe (downloaded from this site if you change the link up top to Run unhider as admin then run restore as admin and all my short cuts came back. Only bad thing is it didn’t restore any of the short cuts i had pinned on the bottom or anything that was on the right side of the start menu. i guess i can live with getting 99% of my shortcuts back. Thanks!

  130. Evan L. Martin says:

    The Unhider appears to be working wonderfully to recover my Mom’s PC after she accidentally opened a trojan, and I see many of the files I knew she had.

    My only question is: how do I know when it’s done all that it will do? (I have no idea what files, aside from her personal work, she had on the PC, and there is no progress bar or dialog, that I’ve seen after 48 hrs, indicating that it has reached its completion point.)

    Please help, and TIA.

    Thank you guys very much.

  134. Bruce says:

    Wow, I was skeptical especially after a few seconds and nothing happened, I started to look for a new solution and assumed I had just installed a virus. when I minimized my screen again, all the icons were there… awesome!

    a quick note though, all my pictures were then giving me an error that i did not have permission to open the files. I opened with a new viewer and they all worked fine. problem solved

    well done!

  135. Clint says:

    If only I had found this earlier. Fantastic bit of software – thank you so much.

  136. Melissa says:

    This really works. it only took 2 minutes. I tried to restore and cleaning out the virus, but my files still would not come back. thanks my paper of 40 pages was due tonight. this really saved me.

  137. madhawa says:

    Thank it works

  138. Zubbie says:

    I ran grindsoft and it restored my files. However, I could not for some reason run, unhinder.exe nor the restore.exe. Both could not be run even as an administrator. Why?3zdh

I removed it with malwarebytes but everything was gone. 🙁 searched around and found this program. 4 minutes later i am writing this review. I can never express my happiness.

  144. Tobie says:

    Holy shit that was easy.. about 2 seconds to download, clicked run and within 10 seconds all my files came back to where they used to be. You bastards need to come out with an anti-virus software. Seriously, Thank You.

    I’m in the same boat as those others who tried to run this two different ways but nothing appears to happen. Can you help? Do you think the virus is preventing me from running this? Thanks.

  172. Peaches says:

    What tha heck. Oh my gosh people this works. Last night my computer was attacked by not one but 2 viruses – Exploit Jave and Trojan:Win 32. I did a system restore and noticed that while it restored my system to a previous point, all my favorites were gone. I didn’t have a lot of files saved because my computer is relatively new, but I had a ton of favorites for my business and other good stuff. I was devastated. So I searched different sites and found that they couldn’t be restored once they were gone. I truly put a damper on the evening. Today I found this and tried it. I just followed these unhide instructions, and nothing happened the first few minutes. Then all of a sudden, bamb all my favorites and missing files are back. I love you guys. I’m going to keep this info for future reference. Also we’re all going to have to become techies to stay ahead of these viruses. Whew. What a relief.

  173. alba says:

  177. Jnoe says:

    Help Please. I tried downloading thew file in order to recover my files but it doesnt open :(. I need help as soon as possible plz.

    Thank you,

  178. Chris says:

    Thank you so much!

    Please note after download and you click run, it will seem like nothing is happening, but it is. Just wait 5-10mins and you’ll notice files start to reappear.

    I had to go into properties on the start menu, to get the usual ‘documents’, ‘computer’ ‘connect to’ links back, but all is back to normal !

    Thank you! Now to buy some antivirus software!!

  179. Sam says:

  185. Andrew says:

    I cannot believe this worked. After restoring my system because of a virus, all of my critical folders and files were gone. I could tell they were still on the computer, but were completely inaccessible. I had resigned myself to the fact that I was foolish and they were gone forever. After one last effort for finding information on the web, I stumbled upon this site. I downloaded and ran the software, after just 15 minutes everything was back. I can’t thank you enough, pure freaking genius. THANK YOU!

    Hi, recently got this virus and it helped to regain my lost files. Not sure if all of them. Anyway , tried on another drive where I had the same problem last year and I think that I only gained part of my files etc…The properties does say 116gb used, but when I measure the files that appeared or regained in this drive, it does only say 81gb. Can anyone help to solve this mistery, why I have not got the full 116gb files etc.. regained or back????

    hi guys…can it also be applied for HD..cause my antivirus deleted infected folders from HD…now i cant repair them…actually my HD says its empty at all

  296. STEFAN says:

    OMG! I had a ransomware lockdown attack which I cleared withSpybot Search and Destroy (freeware) and Malwarebytes Anti-malware (excellent very powerful but one off-payware) and Trojan Remover (one off-payware)–this was a joint effort with all three(probably a multiple infectiona. Infections apparently cleared but Documents, pictures, music, massive Favourites and Downloads files and part of the desktop disappeared!!! Luckily I backed up 48h previously got ready to do a selective restore when I thought this is rather peculiar. Did a google and got here. Used the unhider program and everything missing restored to view. If the no of files apparently lost is very large, perhaps takes a little longer for everything to unhide itself? Thank U all soooo much.

    The thing is all my other anti-malware found and removed infections after some effort but none of them, though they identified a group of infections, (apart from the ransomware lock down) stated what the results of the infections would be!

    Thank you again. I will be a regular visitor in future!!! Keep up the good work! 🙂
