My desktop has gone missing? Help?!

Recommended Posts

My desktop has gone missing. Also my antivirus software, AVG, failed to pick up the culrit. I am in the middle of running RogueKiller, and i hope to be able to post the log, assuming this doesn't catch the virus. At which point hopefully someone on here will be able to tell me what to do, thanks! John.

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll try to help your with your issue.




Before we start please read and note the following:

  • We're primarily oriented on malware removal here, so you must know that some issues just cannot be solved and you must be prepared for this. Some tools we use here will remove your browser search history, so backup your important links and all the files whose loss is unacceptable.
  • Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything not covered in my instructions happens, please stop and inform me!

:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Hi Eagle, sadly i have some chess torrents on my pc which i'm not going to let go of. If it helps you, i generally try and buy the dvds if i like them, and for that reason i have about ten £20-£30 dvds on my shelves for this very reason, but nevertheless if you are going to have me arrested for having these torrents on my computer, i have to stop this conversation here. Thanks anyway. John R.

It's okay Eagle.


I can still access my destop via the folder on the bottom of the screen. It is clearly some kind of virus, but i don't want you to get in to trouble for the 'naughty' downloads i have on my machine, so i think i am best looking for a more 'open' source forum which is prepared to help, as opposed to one which is not. Can you at least point me in the direction of one of these?
