lost icons, start menu right click and taskmanger (win 7 64)

Specs: Windows 7
Hi all please can someone help?. I am running win 7 64bit and all of a sudden all my desktop icons disappeared along with my start menu and my right click function. Ctrl-alt-del brings up the option to access the task manger but it fails to display it. safe mode is fine and when I create a new admin account (admin account 2) all is well.

is there a way to fix this problem as i have a year old system restore that I dont want to use.

I was hoping to fix my admin account 1 as it has all my settings, programs etc. Can this be fixed and if not is there a way to copy all settings (looks, programs, firefox settings etc) to the admin account 2

Any help would be most appreciated.

This is a trojan that has all of your files on hidden mode.. been seeing a lot of this virus lately.

The program Spybot - Search and Destroy usually finds these and takes care of the problem, you can find it on download.com

If it finds the viruses and kills them and restores your registry and your files are still hidden, go back into Safe Mode and navigate to C:\Users\yours, all the folders in there in the properties should NOT be hidden.
