  1. 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?
  2. Hi :)

    Look for the UNHIDER fix for this virus....

    All the best Brett :)
  3. 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
  4. 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
