I was attacked by the trojan virus through a website. I ran the Norton Anti-virus disk and I found 12 harmful files/viruses which I deleted. I deleted the harmful files in the quarantine area as well. When I turn on the computer and log in, I only see the ocean scene which is displayed with Windows XP. There are no desktop icons nor start menu. I was able to access the internet by going through the Windows Task Manager by pushing ctrl alt del. I have booted and nothing has happened and there is no control panel to speak of in my Windows Task Manager. Can somebody give me some advice? thank you!
