  2. Trojans will wreck a system beyond just easy repair If you had a couple i would say it corrupted alot of the system files. Best fix reinstall windows is about the only choice you have at getting your computer back.

    Try booting into safe mode and do a system restore with networking enabled.
    Go back about a month if possible.
    If you notice the system restore takes a bit of time just be patient.
    Hope this helps.

    If that's the case you may have to Restore Windows but choose the option that doesn't destroy your files.
    This will become 'Backup Files' when restore is finished.
    More than likely you will have to dig through them and make them active again.
    Reinstall some and others you can pull the icon to the desktop and go from there
    To me it's undesireable because after this way of restoring, games inserted into the DVD pop up with 'Install game' when actually I can hit the desktop icon and it loads.
    Games can possibly have issues with drivers as well, so it may be a good idea to check all drivers after restore.

    It should be located in the 'My Computer' / (Hard Drive) C:// section with program files. It will be listed as backup files.
