Hi there and thank you in advance for any assistance- I'm at my wits end.
I can log on in safe mode. However, I'm unable to start normally. I ran malwarebytes anti-malware and super antispyware. Both did show some problems. In both cases, I checked the fix sections and rebooted but alas, to no avail.
When I attempt a normal start, the log on takes my password. The background wallpaper comes up but no icons are on the screen, no start button, nor does it allow me to access any programs.
I have run the DDS software mentioned in the other section but it is well above my knowledge range to be able to use it's printout to help my problem, so I humbly ask for your help. Cheers.
