I know this is probably supposed to be easier but I can't seem to get around it. My pc was infected by the Viruswebprotect2008.com. I have already run the SDFix and Malwarebytes. I have manually restored the missing items to my start menu (Control Panel, search, help and support, etc..)I am still missing the following:
When My Computer is opened the "C:" drive is missing alond with "D:"(cd/dvd), but the link to control Panel is back in the main window and on the shortcut menu on the left side of the window. I can however see the "C:" drive when right clicking on the start button and choosing Explore.
I can post any log files that you may need.
To fix the restrictions put in place by this infection, please open the SDFix folder or download XP_CodecRepair.inf and save it to your desktop.
This will remove the policy restrictions the infection created and restore the Start Menu items.
- RIGHT CLICK on XP_CodecRepair.inf and select Install from the Context menu.
- Note: To download the .inf file, go to File, choose "Save page as" All Files and save XP_CodecRepair.inf to your desktop.
- Then log off or reboot to apply the changes.
