So I got that nasty System Fix malware, and I successfully ran rkill, MBAM, and finally unhide. SF is now totally gone. However, I have another issue...after running unhide about five times now, I still have icons and files hidden. I even tried to follow the instructions wherein I temporarily turned off all my antivirus, firewall, and security software and ran the program again, and I am STILL missing Start Menu items (i.e. Control Panel, Documents), desktop icons, and taskbar (is it called taskbar? Quick taskbar? I can't remember...) icons. My documents, music, pictures, etc are visible again, though. I don't know how to get the hidden stuff back up again.. Do I keep running unhide over and over and hope they come back? Is this something I will need to redo manually? Any help anyone can give me would be GREATLY appreciated.
P.S....I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.
