How do I restore windows 7 taskbar after a virus changed it to an XP taskbar?
Okay, so as far as I know the SystemFix.exe virus is gone and my start menu items are back (though there's still a shortcut on the desktop for System Fix) but my taskbar now resembles the XP verson and not the Windows 7 version. It's not a visual customization
thing. The taskbar is still transluscent but the features and its shape (thin) are the XP taskbar, not the Win 7 taskbar. When I first got infected with SystemFix.exe, the taskbar suddenly resembled a cross between Win 7 and XP taskbars, but after removing
the virus with iExplore.exe, Malwarebyte, and unhide.exe, my taskbar now resembles the XP taskbar with the XP tab shapes that appear when a browser or another program is opened, as well as a system tray that resembles XP as well as an XP style clock. Likewise
the IE, Windows Media Player, and Windows Explorer default shortcuts are also gone.
