Have I got malware or was this event caused by a disk check gone wrong?

Toshiba Satellite L770 laptop - 64 bit
Windows 7 Home
Kaspersky anti-virus
Using Mozilla exclusively as IB
Noticed that SolidWorks was taking 10 minutes to open
Disk clean up
Loading MBAM and scanned - found PUP Slimware Utilities driver only
Disk check with no bad sectors found

Upon restart, serious changes:
appear to have lost internet connection
half of the desktop shortcuts disappeared including all Microsoft Office for example and all desktop files
Mozilla shortcut has been corrupted
Thunderbird is functional but there is no data including email accounts - appears like a fresh program download.

Ideas please?

32 bit Win XP Home Boot issue
So my g/f pc burnt out, i think motherboard but didn't troubleshoot a lot because she wanted/needed so many upgrades that we figured why not just rebuild most of it. So we threw together a new case/ps/mobo/cpu/cooling system and just used the HD and CD drive from her last machine (mainly b/c she...
