|lost icons from desktop . |
After awhile happened onto the control panel radio button saying dont display hidden files and folders .
set that to display and the desktop icons reappeared .
I assume whatever malware or virus went through the files was setting their attributes to hidden .
I now have 43 infected files including ntuser.dat .
I went to each icon which was dimmed on the desktop looked at the properties and took off the hidden tick box this made the icons appear brighter .
now how can it get the ntuser.dat file fixed ??
