Somehow a goole search assistant something or another installed on my computer. I saw the icon on the desktop. I found the folder which was in program files and deleted everything in it. One file wouldn't delete, a .dll file, so I had HIJACK THIS remove it on reboot. Big mistake!!. Now when I boot up I have no destop only the wall paper. If I CTL ALT DEL and get to the task manager, no applications are running so I hit new task and type explorer. It opens for a second and then closes. I see the task bar flash on the bottom of the screen and then dissappear.
If I try to run Iexplorer it will not run either.
Same thing happens in SAFE mode.
I tried creating a new user, same thing. No desktop.
All my other programs will run if I browse for them in task manager and start them.
I've scanned with Ewido, S&D, Adaware everything I've got. Nothing.
I have seen other posts on other sites with the same exact symptoms but no solutions.
I am running Windows XP pro.
Any help would be appreciated.
