I turned on my computer last night and all the shortcuts on my desktop don't work. My email program is gone. My Microsoft essentials is gone. My dvd drive is gone. I'm really freaking out here. I don't know what to do or what caused it. Can someone try to help me please. I forgot to mention that I'm using windows 7 64 bit.

I had a nasty virus a few years ago that got rid of most of the icons on my desktop along with creating other miscellaneous havoc. I would definitely run a thorough scan with Malwarebytes, Cathy, just to ascertain that a virus didn't cause these problems.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/ But I wouldn't trust an antivirus or anti-malware program that's run on an infected computer. Once they've infected a computer, some virus can control what the antivirus is able to detect. That may or may not be the case here. But if MalwareBytes doesn't find anything, that doesn't mean you're not infected.
