OK, a few days ago, on the advice of people on a forum that I frequent, I found and deleted the adware that was messing up my browser. I deleted something I don't remember installing called 'Movie Mode' whilst in the process of deleting it, I got a message asking if I wanted to delete a dll file, it said it may affect the way some programs run if I did, I think I pressed no, but I didn't think much of it at the time, so I may have pressed yes.
Now, many of the libraries in windows explorer do not show anything in there, I try to go into the properties to sow hidden files or whatever, but can't seem to access them properly either. I know the files are there as well, because my wallpapers are on shuffle, and they're all in a folder in 'My Pictures' which at the moment, just says "there doesn't seem to be anything here."
I am fairly sure from looking around on the internet that this is a dll issue and not a virus, but either way it is extremely annoying as I can't use my computer properly.
Any help is appreciated, I'm fairly sure it's dll files doing this, but I could be wrong, thank you in advance. :)
It will delete all your 'stuff'. Even running the 'refresh' option will delete all your saved emails and favourites but may well keep your music, photos and documents but I wouldn't bet on it.
Desktop, left bottom corner, right click the start icon, select Command Prompt (admin), type or copy and paste, sfc/scannow, press enter. If error found, try a few times again if not repaired. Try rebooting and see how it goes.
