Hello, I recently had an infection that a quick scan from Malwarebytes identified as "trojan.FakeAlert"
It was removed, but before that I suffered the "desktop files being hidden" issue, and used unhide.exe to cleanup most of the remaining mess.
In addition, after being directed to some posts here by Google, it looks like this class of trojan often leaves behind files that may have been missed.
My computer is not acting oddly other than what is mentioned above, but I'd like to confirm that my machine is clean, and I'd like to know what can be done to retsore my missing Start Menu items, aside form a System Restore, which I'm not sure if this trojan hides in the SR folder or not.
I do have a restore point prior to infection however.
