    I have cleaned virus
    I have cleaned registry
    I have found all hidden , and startup icons in temp files
    but how do I move icons back into startup menu and program menu?

    Download the following program to your desktop:

    Unhide tool

    Once the program has been downloaded, double-click on the Unhide.exe icon on your desktop and allow the program to run. This program will remove the +H, or hidden, attribute from all the files on your hard drives. If there are any files that were purposely hidden by you, you will need to hide them again after this tool is run.
    Please be patient as this may take several minutes to run, it will scan and fix all Hard drives on your system. You will see a new window with the drive being processed, typically C:\ as below:
    Changing as the next drive is processed as below:
    You will get a success alert at the end.
    Re-boot and see if your files are present.

    Run thefollowing to see if your system is clean:

    • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
    • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool.
    • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs
      1. DDS.txt
      2. Attach.txt
    • Save both reports to your desktop.
    • The instructions here ask you to attach the Attach.txt.
    • Instead of attaching, please copy/past both logs into your next reply.
    • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
    Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.
    After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection.
    Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.
    Information on A/V control HERE
