Hello, everyone,
I have a big problem which bothers and couldn't get enough sleep.
The problem is: all my icons and start button are gone. I don't know why? Is is happened because of virus? But I just bought my computer just one week ago. My computer is Dell9100, 3.0 GHzCpu, 512MB RAM, running windows XP. Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot if someone can give me solution for my problem.
Thet.

Hi i know this is not much help but if your computer is new then either take it back to shop or get engineer to call as it will be under warranty, and if you have got a virus then what antivirus have you got installed.

Dell put xp in at factory and you only gey certain disks.

Hope this helps you.
Now installed Microsoft Security Essencials on my Tower with Windows Home Premium 32bit and Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop with Windows Home Premium 64bit

It should have set a restore point. If it did, use it to restore your computer to what it was then.

You most likely have the F-Nimda virus.
Go to this first site and get the instructions:

ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/anti-virus/tools/shellfix.txt

Next go to this site and get the file to fix the problem.

ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/anti-virus/tools/shellfix.reg

Good luck...........Jazzbo

Please let us know if this works for you, so as others will then use this for the same problem.
