Exclamation Solved: Program files missings
I seem to have no program files and almost all my desktop shortcuts have disappeared..Also my Desktop background is gone and its just a black screen.

I have tried Viprescue, malware bytes and Mcaffe but they havent changed anything..

Those programs will not change anything. Your local profile has more than likely become corrupted. What program files are you referring to that appear to be missing?

Some new malware changes the file attribute for some folders to "Hidden."
Rt-click the relevant folders/properties and uncheck the "hidden" attribute.

One guy checked the hidden attribute then unchecked it to solve this.
You can also "Show hidden files" in Control Panel/Folder Options/View

Find the desktop folder and do the same with the hidden attributes.
