Running XP Pro SP3, all up to date. Yesterday ran Spybot S&D (couple of minor annoyances found & cleared such as doubleclick), then Malwarebytes (found nothing) and finally Microsoft Security Essentials (found nothing), all as complete scans, & all as part of normal routine checks. All had been updated immediately prior to running. Computer running okay.
This morning started system, desktop completely empty except for MyComputer and old Mozbackup. Desktop folder also shows empty. Had MANY important files there. 2 programs greyed-out in Quickstart. Also "Search" not working, ditto for System Restore (but this last one had already been acting up, even in Safe Mode). Downloaded and ran TDSSKiller, shows nothing. Likewise for RKill. MSES also turned off when I started today, but turned it on as soon as I noticed.
Any helpful ideas/suggestions/questions?
