I have recently gotten a nasty virus. AVG did not stop it. It erased all of my desktop icons and removed all links from my start button. I can still access my file through My Computer. Any ideas?

Hardware & Software -> Microsoft Windows -> Viruses

And AVG is pretty crappy, I used it myself but it did not detect any viruses. I use Norton now and its a bit better

AVG sucks. Use kasperky anti viurs, it rocks. Haha, sorry for my language. Did you backup your stuff if yes you can restore it.
