Had a bit of a build up of spyware etc, downloaded stopzilla and cleaned up my comp. When i got rid of the crap, it asked me to reboot, i didn't, chose the do it later option. After about 2 hours, a windows warning came up, saying something about low Virtual Memory, and my comp stalled a bit. All seemed fine after a little while, then later all of a sudden, the screen went funny and my comp restarted. Now my desktop loads up, with my folders etc on the front, but not everything on startup will run, and i can't do anything... nothing will work at all.

Any ideas what could have caused this, and what i even need to press to do a scan etc as the comp boots up. Or what i need to do to fix this... i'm worried.

Can you get into safemode? If so, run the scan there.
When it tells you to reboot, that means the changes(repairs) won't take effect until you do
