I have a Windows 8.


I had a piet2eix3l virus in my computer so I searched how to get rid of it. 


I found this website suggesting me to try several anti virus softwares including Hitman Pro.


So I ran it and it found 1 thing to get rid of then it asked me to restart my computer to fully delete the thing.


The drama starts after I restarted my computer...


I now have no internet connection (although I'm typing this from a different computer logged on the same wifi) 


+ the Windows Explorer shortcut doesn't open, when I click it it refreshes the home screen so I can only access my files from the bin shortcut


+ some shortcuts located at the bottom right (next to the time and date) are missing


+ it got rid of my Avira antivirus and desactivated the Windows firewall.


I hope someone can help me because I'm really worried. 


Thanks in advance.

I solved it. If anyone has the same issue, here's how I fixed it : I did a Windows System Restore from the Windows parameters. I lost a minimum amount of files and it took a little bit more than an hour.
