I noticed that there are hidden files on my local discs. Do you think these files were hidden due to virus infection and what should I do regarding such?

.sys files are windows system files. Windows like to to hide system files from the user. I think the reason is to make it harder for the user to delete them by accident because if they do, things can stop to work. I see no reason to think they contain virus.

If you think they are a virus or something then run a virus scan in the folder that contains those files.

Often, hidden files that are on your local disc are file extension SYS. As these files are system files necessary for your machine to work effectively, the operating system often hides these files for protection. Moreover, any deletion or edition of these files is highly discouraged. Nevertheless, you must always run a scan on your registry and all other directories to prevent any virus infection on your machine.
