This is for my sister's Sony Vaio. Apparently she had this virus for a while, which 

basically makes all the shortcut links on her start menu page show up as a pdf.

This prevented her from opening up anything from the start menu like the Microsoft Word, for example,

saying the file crashed and needs recovery of some sort... (not the exact words but it's something like that).

I had to use my old files that still work to use the Microsoft Word or use My Computer to get the things I need.


Could this be resulting from a virus? I looked this problem up on Google but I cannot seem to find a helpful result.
