Yesterday I got this Data Recovery Virus on my laptop. I went on the net and found a way to get rid of it here:
How to remove Data Recovery virus | My Anti Spyware
I followed all the steps and it seems to have got rid of most of it, but my laptop is still not back to normal. I have the Data Recovery Virus icon as a shortcut on my desktop, and in my on my Quick Launch, but when you click either it asks me if I want to delete the shortcut. A lot my files are still hiden too, i.e. My Documents, My Music, My Adobe programs on my desktop, and my start menu is also completely empty of any shortcuts. My laptop also doesnt shut down without me having to hold the power button.
I ran the Malwarebytes Anti-malware Quick Scan a couple more times today and it hasnt found anything in either of them.
So I need to know if the virus has gone completely or if there is still a trace of it on my laptop, and how I get my laptop back to normal?
Thanks a lot.
