O.K. so here's the problem. I have a client that was hit with Antivirus 2009 Malware and a ton of other trojans. I removed the culprits with Malwarebytes Anti-malware. After 6 runs it finally came out clean. Ran AVG antivirus -again came out clean-. Now the problem is the Explorer.exe (the shell) will not load at startup, but you can open it in task manager. Is there a way to stop this behavior from happening. There are so many different answers to fix this. But none of them seem deifinite. These are some I found......-Reload the O.S.- -Run a repair from XP CD- -Check the REG. for the login UI and check reg entires-. Do you all have any ideas...I need your help.

your problem is the desktop isn't showing, right? i don't know why you want to complicate things. simply run a windows repair from the xp setup disk. i think you can even run it from inside windows without the need to boot cd. ctrl+alt+del for program manager, then file>new task, then browse, choose the xp setup drive, locate the setup executable and run it. then choose repair windows.
