After downloading some software, my laptop has been infected with some serious virus; now when I login to my computer, the taskbar flashes for a split second before it disappears. Also there is no icon showing on my desktop; all I see is the blank windows background. I have to start any application from the taskmanager's file/new task menu option. Please help. I tried to run regcure but it didn't help.
Please help!!!

Mod Edit: Topic moved to more appropriate forum~ TMacK

I moved the HijackThis log, that you had posted to the wrong forum, to the Misplaced HJT Logs forum.
Here's the link:
Cannot Start Taskbar And Desktop

Please follow all directions, that I posted as a reply to that topic.

Since you have posted an HJT log, I'm going to close this topic.
From this point on, the HijackThis Team are the only members you should take advice from, until your log has been declared clean.
