My friend has a computer that he didnt use for a very long time. After that he switched for Win XP to Windows 7 and at first everything ran well, but then he went into his other apartment and took the computer with him. Then when he started it Windows 7 loaded very slow. After restarting a few times Windows finally decided to load but the desktop was empty. There wasn't even a Recycle bin on it. Other weird thing was that the start menu was gone too. It basicly was just a desktop picture and nothing else. Keyboard shortcuts didn't work either. Although it may be possible that the desktop icons were hidden because when my friend used Space + Enter he got access to My Computer.
My question is: Is there any way to fix that? If there is please share it with me! I was told it was probably a malware so I'm posting this here for further help!
