Hi! Well after complete removal of McAfee 2 days on (yesterday) I have lost all my windows desktop shortcuts to programmes, excluding my windows toolbar, and my recycle bin. The shortcuts to my programmes, I can live without but where has my recycle bin gone and any ideas why? Cheers in advance, all. PS have also posted this in my topic about Antivirus as thought it was relevant. Cheers to StickyMick. Rightclicked my desktop. Clicked View and desktop icons. All sorted.
