Why does my Windows system no longer show my folders?

My system is showing all the shortcut link instead of showing the folders.
I think that it is affected by some worms. The anti virus scanner does not detect there a virus. All folders are hidden.

    you have to reset the files association, but first you have to give more infi regarding your system which OS is?

    First download superantispyware, instal reboot to safe mode then do a scan and clean, also superantispyware has some function inside that let you repair damages; just check them.

      It is also good to run a cleanup utility before Malware scanning, Cleans out temp files, etc.
