While I was running my GMER scan, I started to have a huge issue with another virus. "Data Restore"

I ran MBAM to remove the virus, which I have done successfully, but now all of my desktop icons are completely gone, all my shortcuts on my bottom bar are gone, as well as the ones on my start menu. Had very important things in the folders on my desktop, and now they're all missing.

PLEASE HELP

You need to post to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section of this site.

The malware removal experts there will be able to help you fully clean your system, hopefully as well as recover your lost items.
