Okay, so today my computer contracted a virus.
I realized it and then when I was about to remove the viruses, the computer froze up, so I thought I'd restart it. I restart it and it boots up well
, but when I get passed the welcome screen, the desktop is blank.
I've seen you can use task manager, but when I did it, it said it was disabled by administator.
Then, I heard to try it in Safe Mode, but I can't get my PC to run in safe mode, only in normal. I'm getting a new PC soon anyways, so all I want to know is what about the HD? The last thing I saw with the virus scanner was that there were viruses in the Recovery (D:) partition and to the best of my knowledge, (C:) was unharmed. I could just reinstall XP, but that is not an option right now. I want all my files, but do I have to fork out $$$ for them to be recovered. To make this simple, I am looking for 1 of 2 things:
1. How am I able to get my desktop back to new? (Restore icons, bar at the bottom)
2. Is there a way to get acess to my data without playing the expensive recovery game? (Again, I would not say my HD crashed)
P.S. If you have any questions, or need me to explain something better, just shout out!
