Hello all it's been awhile since my first and only post. Anyway I have a problem first I encountered Malware Defense on my other computer. I have no idea how it came about. Well I used malwarebytes to get rid of the virus. I did indeed get rid of it now I have another problem. It seems now my computer does the following:

When I start Windows XP in normal mode the computer wont let me click on the icons without it freezing up on me. I can't get into the internet and if I do get on the internet it's kind of brief it'll freeze up on me.

Also the hour glass comes up on the start menu. Can anyone help me out here?

Thank you in advance

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

This sounds as though you are still being affected by the malware and the damage it has done.
