My browser seems to have been redirected to a malicious website. NOD32 gave me a warning = blocked website. But I think it was to late. A few minutes later I got a pop up saying that my drive was no longer accessible. The another saying it could not load the drivers
for the new hardware. But all seemed to work OK. After a later reboot i notices that the start bar and program list was blank, the task bar is blank and so is the desktop. One of my partitions shows 16gb of 94 free but Explorer doe snot show ANY files on it. Sytem restore seems to now be turned off. Also in c:\Users Nothing is listed. I have tried to fixMBR and RebuildBCD. No help. NOD32 shows the PC as clean.
I created a new profile and all the start menu,program menu,task bar, desktop default icons returned. I can see the lost partition OK. But the screen looks like it is in safe mode. Reduced graphics depth, no aero etc.
Any suggestion on how to recover from this?
