after removing klez virus - how can i see what files were deleted?

I removed the klez virus with FixKlez from my computer(thanx to Jon Finely and Ganesh), there were 77 files deleted (so it said). I saw also that some icons dissapeared (they now have the plain application-icon). FixKlez has created a log file... but how can I open it to see what files have been deleted? Or how can I check otherwise what changes have been made?

The log file is PROBABLY a text file. You should be able to open the log file with note pad.

You can either:
1. right-click on the file and select
open- with (then select notepad). Or..
2. Within your profile copy a short-cut of
notepad into the "send to" folder, so
that (for future) you can send
"un-registered" files to notepad.
