I had a virus problem (so called "filost" pop-ups) which I successfully solved by following the advice of GTG. After rebooting my system I realized that:
- after right clicking my desktop to get the display/properties I cannot see the usual tabs (only a window with the title "display:properties" with options to change the theme of desktop and active windows). The tabs for the screensaver, display resolution and so on are missing.
- my taskbar looks like the one of W2K, without having it changed myself through right click on taskbar properties/startmenu/classical startmenu (sorry if the translation from the greek version of WinXp is not that good...)
- I cannot perform a system restore as there isn't any of the time points which I set myself before performing the virus remove actions.
I tried to solve these problems by running GPEDIT.MSC /USER CONFIG/Administrative Templates/Control Panel/Display key. On the right-hand pane, I changed all the disabled/enabled items to "not configured". Nothing happened.
I think the problem has something to do with the registry, hasn't it? I'm not aware of the ways to resolve it using the registry though and I would be very gratefull if you could help me.
Thanks very much in advance
