  1. Hi All

    Please help.

    My internet explorer has gone from my desktop and also from the start--all program.

    Also when i select other files or applications such as control panel it starts to appear than just stops, so cannot see the control panel.

    There was a virus which scanned but the anti virus program could not repair it, i chose it to be quaranteed.

    Please help...

    Will appreciate your help

    Sounds like your virus may still be active, or another is running.

    You can download a trial version of Ewido here: :

    Be sure you update it before using it, and when it finds a problem, be sure to select the check box to do the same action (clean) when it finds a problem, otherwise, you will have to click continue, to keep scanning with every problem it finds.

    What AV program are you using? I would download AVG Free at:

    Keep us informed.
