I got the "System Restore" virus on my computer and cleaned it up based on your recommendations... I've cleaned my registry and I ran the "unhide" program which brought back all of my desktop icons, but I still show my program apps as "empty".

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

What version of Windows are you running?
This is the 98 forum and I doubt that you can be infected with System Restore with 98

We will get you moved into the right place so dont worry!
In the beginning there was the command line.
