Windows Recovery virus

Hi guys,

I'm in need of some computer genius here. I got the windows recovery virus on my computer (right after finishing a ten page paper no less), and I managed to get rid of it by rebooting in safe mode and using malwarebytes. After I got rid of it I realized the virus had managed to hide all of my programs and files to make it look like my computer had been completely wiped.
I used the unhide program and it worked for everything except the start menu, which is showing all my program files as "empty".
From what I've seen on different forums, the virus has hidden them all in a temp folder, I just have no idea how to restore them. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much for your help!
