Hi Soul_Releaser, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Where are they missing from?

Just curious, what instructions did you follow to remove this virus?

Do the hdds show in the Device Manager?

Download Tweak UI and install it (the download is on the right hand side of the screen). Start Tweak UI and click the (+) sign near the My Computer section. Select Drives and put a checkmark near the drive-letters that you want to unhide. Click Apply > OK.

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Restore "Turn Off and Log Off" - Start Menu - #267 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Try Kelly's Korner again:

Enable/Disable LogOff - Classic or New - #98 on the left.
