    Acquired a virus whereby my wall paper turned white, lost the C: drive in "My Computer," lost the Control Panel, lost desktop shortcuts, lost Microsoft Word (the entire application,) and can't select any of the highlighted restore points in System Restore. Ran McAffee and AVG. McAfee did not find a virus. AVG found the virus but couldn't remove it. I deleted the infected files, but the problem persists. Any ideas??

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
