My laptop has Winxp home edition Os.
I realised that i had the brontok virus in my system so i scanned it with Kaspersky Antivirus. while scanning the Antivirus notified me that it would stop the process explorer.exe because it was infected. when i clicked OK my destop went blank save for the wallpaper. No desktop icons, no startmenu or taskbar. i restarted my computer but it seems to freeze on the desktop after rebooting. i thought about fomatting and reinstalling but i have programs in it that i dont want to lose.
What should i do???
Is there any way that i can get explorer.exe running again so i can use another antivirus to remove the virus?
Is their any way i can backup the programs on my Hard drive?
