I think I was hit with a virus this afternoon. I use current and upto date Norton 360 Virus software. All my files appear to be deleted and everything has gone from my desktop aswell.
I have tried to do a system restore but this does not bring back my files.
Can somebody please help me?
Don’t think that virus can delete all your files… I mean the system could be infected but deleted?
Once again: Are ONLY the desktop shortcuts deleted or also other files from HDD?
If the system is infected, then I recommend start a system scan. Norton Antivirus is ok but I use Avira Antivir. This is freeware software and does not need many resources.
If you want you can try to install this and to scan the system.
