If updating AVG and running a full scan doesn't help, you might want to take a look at the below instructions, prior to posting at the AVG forum. You may find it to be of help. Make sure to read (and follow) all the instructions below "Automated Removal Instructions for Data Recovery using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:".

Note Step #19 which includes a tool to "unhide" your files .

Remove Data Recovery (Uninstall Guide)

Best of luck..
