found on a reboot only 10 icons available win7 box .

Specs: Windows 7
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 ??
