Well, with my computer I have, I had Spyware Quake. The folks here helped me remove it and everything was back to normal. Except for one thing. When I turn on my computer for the first time, none of my desktop icons or the taskbar are there. But if I shut it down again, then turn it back on they are there. Does anyone know why this is? Can anyone help me fix it. Thanks

If you have broadband follow these instructions:

1. Click start, then run

2. Type: ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/anti-virus/tools/shellfix.reg

3. Click Ok and it will prompt to download shellfix.reg file

4. Click "Run" file. Do not save anywhere on the computer - just run it.

5. After it runs, reboot your computer and the problem will be gone

The shellfix.txt repairs the corrupted explorer.exe
