Dell laptop win7 Home premium.
My wife's computer was recently infected by something disguised as Windows Defender. I used Malwarebytes in safe mode to remove it. Prior to this I noticed that the start menu and the all programs list unders the start menu were empty or with partial folder lists and folders that were empty. I could however find all of the programs by browsing to them with win explorer.
So my question is how do I get these lists repopulated and how do I get the Dell Dock back....my wife seems to like this feature.
I also just noted that her screen image is gone and when I try to change the background from black to a custom picture it simply will not let me do it.
I also just noticed that all of the shortcuts on the desktop are gone. I can browse to them but I cannot make them visible on the desktop.
Very frustrating overall.
Any help regarding this would be greatly appreciated.
