I had the XP smart security virus, and after looking for a solution in the Yahoo! forum, I was directed to this site by someone on there
I followed the removal guide in the link belowhttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...-smart-security
It deleted the virus, but it also seems to have deleted numerous applications from my Control Panel. If I click on Security Centre, Windows Firewall, or pretty much any other application on the Control Panel, a pop up window appears saying "application not found".
I assume that in following the steps to delete the virus, all those applications have also been deleted.
Any advice on how I can restore them?
