1. the shortcuts in the start menu are not loading - I can see them when I look in the "all users" folder. But I can't get them or the quick launch to load.
2. The shortcuts I had on on my desktop prior to the attack don't work properly. I have to right click on them and select open, in order to run the program.
3. Some shortcuts won't start anything at all - control panel for instance. I was able to access add/remove, but none of my programs were listed, and when I went to "add a progam" it gives me an error message about rundll32.exe and memory
4. Finally, I want to uninstall and reinstall Internet Explorer, because it is messed up too. I can't though, because it says the uninstall files are corrupted or missing. If I try to install IE, it won't because I have a "newer version."
