Windows Recover Virus: Start Menu program shortcuts missing after removal

Recommended Posts

My computer contracted the Windows Recovery Virus the other day. I followed the instructions on the link below, and believe that the virus has been successfully removed using Malwarebytes.


Subsequently, I also used unhide.exe to unhide various files hidden by the virus and various icons on my desktop. This worked fine.

My problem now is that the various program shortcuts within Start --> All Programs are still missing, with the various program folders in the Start menu saying that they are empty.

Can you please help me with this issue and is there any way to fix the above?

Many thanks in advance for your help!! I ran the DDS tool and attached the docs below.
