I have an elderly friend that got the internet safety 2010 worm/trojan whatever it is. I downloaded and ran Ad-aware se which didn't find it, but it may not have been updated. Then I ran Spybot S&D and it found several issues which I told it to fix and rerun on startup. Now the computer won't boot completely. It brings up the desktop but no icons and start menu is not available. If I leave it alone it will eventually go back to the log in screen.

I tried booting in safe mode and it goes to the log in screen and when I click on the user it flashes to a black screen and back to the log in screen.

The computer is running XP media center edition.....
