How come all my files are gone after using rkill to remove malware? 

by on March 31, 2011

Q: All my files disappeared from the desktop. The quick launch buttons are also gone. But everything else is there, like the start button and google gadgets and such. And on the desktop, all the shortcuts are still there.

I can only find my files by searching through Computer. Not all files are shown though, but I know they are still there because the space used on my local disk is still the same. But when I search for the files and try to open to folders, they appear empty.

This all happened after I got a Malware. So I used rkill to shut the malware process down. As soon as it finished, this happened.


How can I get my computer back to normal getting Animalware Doctor? 

by on December 8, 2010

Q: I just picked up a malware program (Antimalware Doctor) and it did a pretty good job of messing up my system before I was able to get rid of it. Anyway, after I deleted from my system, I am having a serious problem with Windows 7. I had to uninstall McAfee because it kept turning off, and I’ve yet to reinstall it.( I used Malwarebyte’s to get rid of the malware I had.) Now, however, whenever I boot up the computer, Windows freezes at the Desktop. I can still move the mouse, but nothing else can be done. It will work in Safe Mode, I’m just not sure what to do next…

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated.
