Hello all:

I am having a problem- after logging in into my account, I do not get the start menu and all my desktop icons loaded..but can only see the wall paper.

Background: A few days ago, my computer was hit by a malicious spyware, and I used "HiJAck This (HJT)" and other softwares like CCleaner,CWshredder,etc. to remove those malwares. While downloading these softwares I saved them on my desktop. Yesterday, I moved the HJT installation file from my desktop to My Documents folder, and a message poped up "Moving this file may cause some ofthe files to not function correctly", but I still moved it.

From then on my desktop doesn't load until I use the boot logging mode during start-up. Now, I even uninstalled the HJT software from my hard drive and deleted the HJT original folder from My documents. But I am still facing the same problem...my desktop doesn't load the start menu or desktop icons.

Someone pls help !!

First thing to try might be to bring up the Task Manager. CTRL+SHIFT+ESC
If you can get that up, see if you can't run a command: File > New Task > sfc /scannow
That will scan your Windows files and look for corruptions. If it finds files it needs to replace, it will ask you for your Windows disk.

Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream ?
