I (thought I) successfully removed that rather nasty Windows XP Recovery virus. Please keep in mind that I used "unhide.exe" as part of the process.
Today I went to "All Programs" on the start menu and the programs folders are listed/visible but when the pointer is put on them the extensiona all say "empty."
For example, in the "All Programs" part of the Start menu, when I put the pointer on "Accesories" the next extension opens and lists; "Accesibility, Communications, Entertainment and System Tools" folders.
But when I put the pointer on the "System Tools" folder for example, the next extension pops up but says (Empty).
I believe the "missing" programs are there, just hidden. I have Avast! up and running but when I put the pointer on the Avast! folder it shows (Empty).
Is this fixable?
