    I have recently been messing around with themes, docks, icon ect.. to make my pc look like a mac. I havn't been very careful and have downloaded a few torrent and other files that have been "threats" according to AVG

    Now and part of explorer is pitch black apart from icons, i cant see error messages or find things like control panel.

    After alot of looking around in the dark i managed to find my way to system restore and put it back to before i had even considered changing the apearance of my operating system but still the problem persists.

    Please help if you can, any would be very, very apreciated.
