I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 64. I recently cleared out an infection from my PC called 'Windows Vista Recovery'. It hid all my files and deleted useful desktop icons, as well as removing the quick launch icons, the recently used and pinned start menu programs, and some of the folders in All Programs.
I'm fairly certain that I cleaned up the infection. I ran Rkill, followed by Mbam, Avira antivir, and spybot in safemode. All three are coming up clean now, and I used unhide.exe afterwards.
However, it is now impossible to pin anything to the start menu or the quick launch bar. I suspect that registry entries have been changed or the folders have been deleted. It seems the virus also deleted my restore points as well.
Is there a way to bring back these functions?
Thanks in advance
