fresh install of windows or use system recovery to wipe hard disk clean and have a new installation of windows that is virus-free. now restore your data from your backup. you do have a backup right?

reset file attributes: will get you your desktop items back.

search for smtmp for your startmenu shortcuts, located in your temp files if you haven't deleted them yet

in cmd: attrib -h /s /d

if your startbar and desktop do not show, than all you have to do is relaunch explorer.exe

press the windows key, than r which will open a run prompt. than type explorer.exe and hit enter
