I hope you can help me.
I managed to get the winfixer virus on my laptop recently. Since then the performance of my laptop has deteriorated. I use windowsXP. I tried to quarantine the virus with McFree antivirus software but I think this made things worse. I then tried windows restore, no joy. I had to then do a system recovery which hasn't helped either. Now my laptop runs very slow and when it finaly boots up and gets to my desktop I have no taskbar with the start button.
I cannot use some of my icons and also it now thinks there is no soundcard!
I am considering doing a back up and then a format of the disk during recovery.
Do you think this is wise or is there something else I can do. BTW I cannot get onto the internet now because IE will not open up.
