Hi,

I am using Windows 7 home edition. I have noticed that my settings have been changed for some weired reason by the system and I can no longer see the settings I had put in place such as desktop icons etc. I tried the system restore option but I only see today's date under the heading Date and Time in the system restore dialog box. I want to restore the system to an earlier date of my choice for example 1 Oct, 2011. But I am not able to do so. I have attached a screenshot of my pc exactly as it is for your reference. Can you please help me out, this is driving me nuts, thanks.

----------

How can I attach an image to this thread? Thanks.

If your icons are missing and missing elements from start menu and all, then its an infection that has changed some registry settings.
