Lost all destop icons for each user except the common ones

Unread postby flyingdave » July 4th, 2009, 1:48 am


Noticed that all of the desktop items were lost except for the common ones (all users).

Kaspersy Internet Security 2009 full scan was run and the recommended fix was used. Several virus, malware and trojans were found. All were allegedly fixed.

The desktop icons (like my computer etc) are still missing and not to be found in the user's destop directory.

Is there still infections on the system? Also is it possible to get the desktop items restored?

Thanks in advance

Hello flyingdave,

Welcome to Malware Removal. I am Jack&Jill, and I will be helping you out.

Before we go further, there are a few things that I would like to make clear so that we are share the same understanding.
  • Please observe and follow these Forum Rules.
  • As I am currently training at Malware Removal, it will take some time for me to go through your logs, please be patient with me.
  • Be assured that any recommendations to you will be done as soon as possible and will be approved by an expert.
  • Reply and keep only to this thread. If you have the same topic elsewhere, please inform me or the other forum so that either can be closed.
  • Any advice is for your computer only and is taken at your own risk. Fixes sometimes will cause unexpected results, but I will do my best to assist you.
  • If you have any doubts or problems during the fix, please stop and ask.
  • Do not use or run any tools without supervision as they may cause more harm if improperly used.
  • If you do not reply within 3 days, this topic will be closed.

If you are agreeable to the above, then everything should go smoothly :) . We may begin.
I am working on your log now and will be back the soonest.

You are running HijackThis from a temporary folder/desktop/zip file.

When HJT fixes anything, it makes backups of the original files in the folder it is in. For this reason it cannot be run from temporary folder, desktop or from a zip file because the backups will be deleted.
Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the fix process.

Move HijackThis.exe to a new folder like C:\HijackThis. You will need to create the folder.

Please post an Uninstall list
  • Open HijackThis.
  • Go to Open the Misc Tools section by clicking on the box.
  • Under the Systems tools, look for Open Uninstall Manager and click on it.
  • Click Save list... and save the text file in a convenient location.
  • Post the Uninstall list contents in your reply.

Hello flyingdave,

It has been 3 days since my last post. Do you still need help? Any problems following my instructions? Need more time?

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
