Hi, I have a Dell laptop Inspiron E1405 that unfortunately was infected with a virus. My cpu got infected because my virus protection McAfee expired. (Prior to that McAfee always blocked such threats to my cpu... I had my cpu for 3 yrs roughly) Anyways I scanned the latest McAfee virus scan I had which picked up alot of the infected files and quarantined them however there were about 6 files that could not be quarantined. These files were windows system 32 files and perhaps something else. Well being that McAfee located where the files were I went and located the file and simply deleted them by sending them each to the McAfee Shredder... which was a huge mistake in my fault because now my cpu turns on and I can log in but when I do that all I get is my screensaver background with no icons or anything else. Obviously I deleted some important system files and now I dont know where or how I can even recover such files. Moreover, I don't remember the files' names sad.gif and I don't even know if the virus is gone and my cpu is acting like that because of the files I deleted or because the virus got worse. I think it was the deleted files... can anybody please help?
