desktop icons disapeared

Post by xcaret on 17th January 2011, 4:13 am

My 12 year old daughter said she was downloading "musicfrost" when she said the pc got stuck. After rebooting it and clicking on user, the screen went blank .The only thing
I could think of was "alt,ctrl,delete" then I typed in "new task" and was able to get the pc going again but still no desktop ,no start icon. After 1/2 hour I clicked on something that restored my desktop but I couldnt get to "remove/add programs" to uninslall musicfrost..I'm not sure what I did to get the desktop showing but after running malwarebytes and getting rid of 7 things it found ,I restarted ,and again no desktop..
Is there anything I can do that you know of ??
Thanks ,Neil

If combo-fix fixed your problem, it seems to be an infection.

Go on the malware area and post a new topic. Also put a redirect link here so the malware staff will be able to see that you used combo fix.

Just start a new topic there and give them a link on the post here. If you don't know how to do that just copy this link http://www.GeekPolice.net/t25779-desktop-icons-disapeared and post it there so that the malware staff can see it. Don't forget to mention again your problem and what you've done till now.
