I had got windowXP recovery virus in my WindowXP PC this weekend and managed to remove it. All program menus were gone but later i had run this command "attrib -h /s /d" and attrib "-h -a -s /s /d *.*" these commands manage to return back my all program menus but they are empty now. I had used Malwarebytes and Stopzilla anti spyware tools.

When i go to my C://programfiles all the softwares are there and now i am running them by going into their folders and clicking .exe files to run those.

Some of my normal files in program files are still hidden.

Can anyone help me to return back my all programs Please....
