I have a computer here that has recently been infected with a virus (see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic242634.html). Although the virus now appears to be contained, during the containment of the virus Windows Explorer stopped functioning correctly, with the following symptoms:
- The taskbar (Start menu, system tray, etc) are missing
- There are no icons on the screen
- The right click menu is unavailable
- When I run "explorer" from the run menu, the taskbar shows up briefly, then disappears.
thanks for any thoughts or advice!
