Just recently, my computer restarted itself due to a legit windows update. I believe that due to previous viruses, something might have modified my UserInit because when the screen loaded, no icons or taskbar appeared. I have scanned for this virus with multiple programs, and Spybot SD seems to detect a Win32.Agent every scan. Apparently, I am unable to delete this virus. I am also concerned that other viruses may have influenced this error with the computer, so I would some help deleting every single virus on my computer and returning my UserInit back to normal. I have also ran RegRun which seems to detect a change in the value of the UserInit. I have not made any changes as I do not understand the meaning of the results, but it seems to show that there is a twext.exe in the UserInit value. If you have any solutions, please help.

Also, I would like to mention that I made a previous post on this but for some reason, the browser never let me return to the site. I would like to receive assistance ASAP as I need this computer for homework in the near future. Any help is appreciated.
