Whenever I start up my computer after I log onto my account no icons or task bar shows up, and the only thing I can see is my custom background. This all started to happen after i caught the System Security version 4.51 virus. at first the Virus kept asking me to purchase system security version 4.51 because i was infected with 38 different types of worms, malware, spywear, trojans etc. However, whenever i tried to run my virus scan (I have AVG) it would say the file can't be executed because the file was infected. The same exact thing would happen if I tried to open a number of other files and programs, like control panel. Because of that I couldn't simply delete the virus. I then rebooted my computer and started up in safe mode and deleted the virus. After that i restarted the computer and logged in normally, but i couldn't see any icons or the task bar. so I then repaired and reinstalled the OS, and i still had the exact same problem. I tried to find the "explorer.exe" file and delete it but it wasn't there. I've been using task manager to start new processes. Also, i can't run AVG scans now because it's telling me to reinstall it, but i don't have the product key. So can somebody please help?
