all my files disappeared from my desktop on my computer how do i recover them? Also, everything from my Start menu disappeared. I have tried System restore, Searching for different file types, and looked at the anti virus/protection and nothing seems to work. I have also lost music, pictures, and school work of all different file types. For some reason though, I still can access the internet and through my searches, it reads that I still have memory on the computer.
Used the website above and it found 181 malicious attacks. Deleted those. Thanks! Clicked on the hidden files in the control panel. The files show up now, but they don't show up solid like the other items on my desktop. Also, my Start menu is still blank.
