My wife's laptop (which is running Windows XP service pack 2) recently got hit with super anti virus pro. I ran malware bytes on the computer and on restart the computer would hang on a black screen with the cursor. I restarted in safe mode and was able to get back into normal mode after I used msconfig to disable all the programs that were running on startup. After re-starting I was able to log in, in normal mode. I also used msconfig and changed the startup selection to diagnostic startup.
Now windows explorer wasn't running, so I restarted in safe mode. Windows explorer won't run now in safe mode either. I restarted one last time in safe mode with command prompt. The command prompt works and when I tried to use that to run explorer.exe it came up for a second under windows task manager and immediately closed. I'm pretty much at a loss of what to do now.
