I got yet another google updater virus and the fake anti-virus. To get rid of it, what I did is run malwarebytes and norton power eraser in safe mode. Both programs found things to remove. When I got out of safe mode and went into my account, there were only four desktop items (recycle bin, IE, my documents and my computer) and my favorites menu is empty. Please help!
