Changing filepaths for the start menu and desktop


Recommended Posts

I recently contracted Trojan.Sasfix, and it was safely quarantined and deleted, however it changed the paths of my start menu, desktop, and my documents to TEMP folders.

I was able to retarget the path for My Documents to what it should be, C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Administrator\My Documents (instead of C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP\Compaq_Administrator\My Documents)

But I can not find a way to rename the paths of either the desktop and start menu. Any suggestions?
