Also unable to even right click on desktop. Any ideas? The infection probably hid the folders/files. If you can get to internet, download a utility "unhide" - I think it is at bleepingcomputer.com. Do it in safe mode with Internet if you can't do it in normal startup. Also - do not delete any Temporary folders, Temp folders, etc, because unhide may not find everything, and the files/folders usually end up there. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows XP>Unable to display shortcuts on desktop> Related ressources: ForumWant My Pictures and My Documents folder shortcuts on same..
