If you know of this problem, caused by the malware and it's removal, you could find 10 more you are not aware of - yet. Save yourself time and headaches, back up your data, format your hard drive, reinstall your operating system and programs. If you took this to any professional to fix/repair the problem, this is exactly what they would do to make you happy and protect their reputation, while charging you $50 - $100USD per hour to do it. Professional ITs are not interested in applying fancy fixes that may have questionable results. They want it fixed right, the first time, with as little headache and effort as possible.

"Sounds like the virus/malware changed some permissions on your file/folders. Give this a try. If this doesn't work, let us know.

Check the attributes of the individual folders under %username%\Start Menu\ as well as All Users\Start Menu\ to see if the items in question had attributes changed.Some menu and desktop items instead of being folders\shortcuts under those paths are added instead directly in the registry, and that's what the Kelly's Korner fix tried to fix.You should also try numerous anti-virus and anti-malware.You can try COMODO
