I do see the ActiveX entry in the Downloaded Program Files folder that was placed there. It seems you have found a workaround of the issue. A shared folder exists to be accessible for Computer A. Surely there's not a virus that can make the contents of one folder become entirely invisible - then again, dumb comment. And none of these 'regular' files will appear when running a search.

The mechanism of removing an ActiveX Control and some other system components are similar, thus a user can remove an ActiveX control can also remove these components. A Microsoft article said that one can actually delete the Downloaded Program Files folder and that it will reappear after the next boot although the folder will not behave quite the same until some procedure is run.

It does not have a Security tab. So what does this mean in English? It shows the same thing when I access it via the view objects button in Internet Explorer.

Are the malware creators just better at deploying software? I've tried enabling the viewing of superhidden files, but they still don't show.
