After scanning with Mcafee, and deleting viruses, after rebooting, the taskbar and start menu are gone. I have not found any common denominator. except it only seems to happen on xp pc's. After scanning 11 pc's, 9 had to be recoverd from the cd, this can be very time consuming, has anyone had this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Use chkdsk /f  to check system files that may be damaged by virus

    sfc /scannow to restore deleted or infected DLL files
