I've had that happen sometimes, when for some reason, the video driver's don't load for some reason. Try a reboot, and if that doesn't work, run a full virus scan, as well as SpyBot Search & Destroy and A2 malware removal.

Did it remove trojans or nythin??

i'd advise to run a full scan incase the trojans are back and then do the following, if prompted to restart to remove leave the files in quarentine and do not restart instead follow these instructions:

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix

It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

Close any open browsers.

Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Double click on Combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.

The problem is i cant read combo fix logs but if the pc runs fine i guess its fxed it.

Make sure System Restore is also disabled. The virus may try to restore its self though that.

I hope this will work
