Now, the problem started a couple of months ago, basically, the first symptom I noticed was that I was unable to load certain applications on my desktop, i.e. I double click CCleaner and it doesnt open (there are a lot of other programs that wont open too) and I cant get to them through explorer either.
Don't judge me, but I don't use an Anti-virus, not really sure why, I suppose its because I play games and dont like the extra load on my machine, now I realise that probably isnt such a wise choice. Anyway, I tried installing Norton and McAffee (Yes I removed one before installing the other) and they didnt find much, or the things they found were only small. I then ran MBAM and again, didnt find too much going on.
Last night when I came accross this website I tried following the Spyware and Malware removal guide, I got as far as running MBAM again, it found a few threats, and when it came to the reboot, now, whenever I load the computer, I dont have a desktop, I cant get to explorer, I have to do everything through task manager. I would have continued with the guide but obviously now I'm more concerned about just getting my computer back to how it was
I'm relatively computer literate but if anybody can help, maybe use a little "dummy safe" instructions just to be sure.
Thanks in advance,
*edit* The message I'm getting when I load up is UxTheme.dll is missing.
