Cannot right click on desktop or move anything to it.
Posted on 2011-05-10
I removed a machine that had some nasty fake AV on it. After having done that using Malware bytes and a reboot, I was on users desktop, which was blank, nothing at all on it, I went to Documents folder, and his "Desktop folder" does have his files, they just arent showing on on the actual desktop, I tried to move them, but it wont allow me to move(it doesnt even attempt a move).
I've seen this before couple of years ago, its as if the snapshot of my background is covering the real desktop and all the items, and ofcourse I cannot moving anything on to a picture by drag and move or copy and past. I'm not sure if some registry entires were modified by the Torjan/virus.
The client is a Winxp Pro SP3. I created another profile and it runs fine, I can see desktop items, right click, create stuff on it etc.
Is there a .dll file that I can move from working profile over to the user profile with broken desktop?
I wanted to avoid having to delete this users profile and creating it again.
