i scanned my computer one night with adaware and as i was gettin ready to go to work i hurried up and quaranteened all the files it found that were harmful and i did not know that it found the svchost.exe file as harmful. it then popped up with the file has been removed and the system will restart in a certain time limit. so i hurried up and saved some of the files i had up and when it restarted i have no start menu bar and all i get is the icons. it seems kind of like it is in safe mode, but its not really in safe mode if that makes any sense. if i can get any help to get my computer back to running the way it use to it would be greatly appreciated. i was thinking about a full restore, but thats like last resort for me. thanks for the help guys.

here is a log to show that the svchost.exe is not in the running processes.
