so i got onto my computer, and i noticed some of my desktop icons were gone. i also had a weird "windows 7 recovery" icon on my desktop as well. after a few seconds of confusion, it opened itself and started to "scan" my computer and said it was fixing the problem. i wouldnt let me X out of it or minimize it, so i knew something was wrong. i ran malwarebytes, and it found something and i delted it, and figured after i restarted it it would be fine. but i was wrong.
after the restart, everything was gone from my desktop but malwarebytes and microsoft offrice, and ALL of my files, folders, muusic, pictures, videos, EVERYTGING, was gone!! but, when i go to the search menu under my documents, everything comes up. and when i go to microsoft office and go to my recent documents, i am able to pull things up.
so i re-ran my malwarebytes, and it found about 6 new items, and it said it delted them. now, it appears to be virus free, and yet i still cannot see any of my files or folders on my desktop, nor in my "documents" folder. but i am able to search for them!!
i am now downloading AVG and i have malwarebytes still on my computer.
whaaat happened?!!? thank you:/
