Hello. first time posting here, so i hope i get it right.

I'm working on a computer that was infected with that darn windows 7 recovery virus. I did use the tools from another post with said run the rkill.exe and the unhide.exe. After doing so i tossed a gambit of anti malware programs at the pc. such programs were Malwarebyte, SuperAntiSpyware, A-squared emergency kit, Hitman Pro, Spybot, TDSS Killer, and Spyware Terminator. It appears that these have removed all traces of the virus.

Problem is now that all startup items are missing along with system tools, such as defrag, cleanup, system restore.

I read the one post that said coping and moving the smtmp folders, but they do not exist on this pc.

Thanks,
tent

You can restore the defaults for the Start Menu and Administrative Tools as follows:
For any other missing program shortcuts you will probably need to reinstall the application or manually create new shortcuts.
