Hey

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?

Cheers
Syntax

Hey,

Don’t understand me wrong but we can only speculate about this…

What happens if start a virus scan with Norton? Does it find viruses on your computer or not?

Hi

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.
