After virus attack my background wallpaper gone, desktop icons disappeared except for Mozilla and recycle bin and start menu nearly empty except for the start search at the bottom.Rogue.Fake HDD and Plum.hyjack.Startmenu attacked and I'd really like to get my computer back to being useful again. It believe my data is all there - I can access word documents by naming them individually or requesting into the search menu. I access google by searching for google.ca in the start search and I managed to find Windows Mail which seems to be all there - but its hard to function well without icons and start menu programs etc. I'm afraid I'm a complete tiresome newbie when it comes to this. I did get rid of the virus(s)(successfully I hope) with a copy of malware byes I had on the computer - it actually stopped working and disappeared from my desktop but I managed to get it back and I disconnected from my router and after a long time did manage to get rid of all the virus - 7 in all 4 of them FAKE.HDD and two PLUM.HYJACK.STARTMENU (according to maleware bytes). Can someone help me? Is there a way I can get my desktop and startmenu back to looking normal (or returned to its former condition)?
