Calling all tech geeks...I NEED HELP!

Hopefully this wont get deleted, because it has ZERO to do with MMA.

At some point this morning, my computer picked up a virus, or trojan or whatever trying to get me to purchase a "safe Defragmenter" or something along those lines.  After some research, I found it was a somewhat common virus, and after following certain steps, I'm pretty confident its removed from my computer.

BUTTTT... now my desktop is missing all the Icons, all the short cut keys, and when I hit the start button, there are no programs listed... I also thought it deleted all my files, but I realized that it just hid them all.

SO, if anyone can help me try to reconfiguer my desktop and start menu, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

I've tried right clicking, and hitting >arrange Icons>show Icons...and when I right click on the desk top, nothing happens...so that resolution is out.

 

Also, when I go into the control panel, and try to change the background (Which also got deleted), it won't allow me to make any changes.

 

THanks for the help....
