My system is a Samsung NC10 netbook running WinXp. Recently I have had a problem where after I enter my password to log in to windows, I just see my desktop wallpaper with no icons or start bar - explorer.exe is loading but I don't see it. Also I get no context menu so I can do nothing really. At first it would usually work by using CTRL+ALT+DEL and logging off and trying again, but it has got to the point now where it won't log in properly no matter how many times I try - it will only run in safe mode.
I run the latest version of AVG, and did a full command line scan which didn't seem to help, and I also ran a full spybot check yesterday which removed some stuff but hasn't seemed to help either.
It's strange that terminating explorer.exe and restarting it doesn't seem to do anything either.
My HJT log is attached if it helps, although it is one from a scan done in safe mode so I'm not sure if the culprit process will even be running.
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
EDIT: I realised I could run HJT from the task manager so I did a scan and attached this log as well - bear in mind it was run with a blank desktop but I'm hoping that whatever is causing the desktop not to load is already running, I would guess so anyway :\ Thanks again, and please let me know if there's anything I have missed or can do to help you help me
