So I downloaded the trial version of Ewido to remove some fun spyware/adware, and after the scan completed, and I restarted my computer, it just isn't the same.
The start bar on the (normally) bottom of the screen is non existant. All desktop icons are gone. My desktop picture, however, is there and is as beautiful as ever.
When I open the task manager and click file-run, and then browse, all of my desktop icons are there, and all my programs are there (hence how I was able to run Firefox...), but nothing else is right.
Is it possible that Ewido deleted the program that runs all of the start bar/ desktop icons? (I believe it's Explorer or something, which is normally in the task manager, but currently isn't...).
I would just run the XP repair thingie on the XP CD, however, I just moved, and all of my software is still 400 miles away, and I'm not planning on going up there anytime soon.
Any chance of a quick fix at all?
