I need some one to gain remote access to my computer as I am not computer literate
OK thank you. Some rogue applications will actually hide your shortcuts in that location, since you do not have that folder then the following tool will restore the default shortcuts and start menu and any other programs you have will need a new shortcut created by right clicking on the programs .exe file and selecting create new shortcut. Download and run the unhide.exe from DANGEROUS URL REMOVED

Yes you can keep it open if you want or you can bookmark this page to return here at anytime.

You can press and hold the CTRL + D to save the bookmark, then to return here depends on your browser either open the Bookmarks menu or the Favorites menu to see your links.
