Start Menu Programs Missing
I recently followed procedures for removal a rogue Windows 7 Recovery malware application on my Windows 7 Home Premium system.
After the successful removal of the malware, my Start Menu Programs are all missing (basically nothing in there) and 95% of all my icons (on the desktop, within Win Explorer) are all grayed-out. (They still work but are gray).
I have a feeling it could be a corrupted user profile, but I'm not sure.
So far, I've restarted twice, right-clicked the start button to make sure default settings are set, ran a CMD prompt with SFC /SCANNOW
Nothing has worked yet, any ideas, next steps?
Thanks in advance
