I got hit with a virus this week which rmeoved all deskrop icons and would not let me do anything. I was able to go-back to a week earlier. Now I have the following issues (at least):

1. all my data files are hidden.
2. any Google searches lead me to different sites, nothing to do with the search.
3. my internet favorites are gone (least of my troubles).

Any ideas as to what virus I got hit with and how to repair this?

PS: I user Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security (2012)...
