For a while I had problems with a virus that had infected several of my files. I ended up buying Avast, which found the virus and deleted the files. Unfortunately, this messed up my computer and it had to be taken in to get repaired. They ended up repairing the computer by replacing the corrupted files, and it seemed to be okay. However, this morning I logged on and found that the user icons had been reset, and most of my icons deleted (some games, some other useless items) and many of the things on the start up menu.
One example is for the Sims 2, which was working fine last night. I click on the shortcut, but it says it can't find anything and it isn't on the start up menu lists. However, the computer still recognises it and several other missing items as being installed on the computer. I also tried to do a system restore, however that was missing though I did manage to open it through the command prompts, but it had been turned off and so there aren't any earlier dates I can set it to. I also don't think I can get into Safe Mode.
So, anyone know what's wrong, or what I should do?
