Windows 2003 server that was infected with Windows Recover malware. I've followed the removal instructions found on bleepingcomputer and the box is running more normally - files are 'back'.

Remaining issue is that all of the icons for the programs are still missing. Programs run fine from the command line (word, excel) or by creating new shortcuts.

Is there a utility to recover the actual icons - especially the server icons?

see what a Bing search turns up. I've never seen this one before, but I'm sure that it can happen.

All of the program icons are essentially shortcuts. Are they gone from the start menu? Server stuff are all MMC based. You can create your own by typing mmc in run and then adding whatever modules you want. I doubt there is a program that can do what you are asking since each server and computer is so different and there are so many possible programs it would be a programming nightmare.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
