It may be a virus but I'm not sure. Anyways, all of the icons on my desktop of programs are no longer there and the start tab usually at the bottom of the screen is gone. Any time I try to drag something onto the desktop, it doesn't allow me to. Is there any way to mess with the settings to get it back to normal? Take into consideration, it doesn't even let me right click the desktop. If I open up Task Manager and go to the processes tab, is explorer.exe doesn't open. When I hit enter, my computer tells me "This application has failed to start because WININET.dll was not found. Re-installing this application may fix this problem." I've already gone through 2 virus searches and found tons of infected object/cleaned them but my computer is still in the same condition. I tried downloading the wininet.dll file at the following link. http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?wininet When I tried to install it, a message came up that said C:\DOCUMEN1\Owner\Locals1\Temp\wininet.zip couldn't be opened because the associated application doesn't exist. Change the association in your preferences. What should I do now? Any help is greatly appreciated.
