I recieved a virus suspicious.mystic along with Trojan.FakeAV!gen30 the other day. When I restarted my computer, windows loaded and the screen was totally black with no icons/taskbar.

I am running Windows 7-32 bit.

I have read several topics concerning this and ran the following antivirus/spam programs (TDSS Rootkill, Malware bytes, ATF and Super). I believe that Explorer.exe somehow got corrupted and after the virus scans, it was totally deleted off my computer.

I have gone into the task manager and tried to run explorer.exe and I get an error that the file does not exist. I checked in the C:\windows file and it is not there.

Is there anyway to fix this? Replace Explorer.exe?
