My stupid, stupid roommate downloaded a file off KaZaa and game us both the LoveLetter virus. I reformatted after backing up my MP3's on his hard drive, then he did the same. My problem is that some of them have been somehow transformed into "system files." They're still MP3's, but they're now hidden and system files! How do I take the system file designation off them?

Delete those that have a 'system file' designation, or at least run them throught a good scan. You can right click on the affected files to change their properties.

Right click and select properties, you should be able to set the file attributes from there.

No, it's not that simple. Give me some credit here. The right click menu has hidden checked, but greyed out so I can't use it. When I move it, Windows says "Are you sure you want to move this system file?"

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
