Posted 22 October 2010 - 04:51 AM

I have a problem.. my taskbar and all desktop icons have disappeared.
my wallpaper is still intact but i cannot right click on the desktop and pressing the start key on my keyboard does nothing. im running windows XP. task manager still works, and i can still use 99% of my programs through that, however it is getting annoying and tiresome.

i am not 100% sure malware or viruses are causing this but over the last 2 weeks i have been plagued by these things, most notably antimalware doctor which blocked most programs, task manager etc in addition to giving me the "YOURE INFECTED!!! BUY OUR SHYT!!". Also I have dealt with another one which redirected almost every link from google. took me a while since i had never gotten infected before, but i have gotten rid of these. but now this one has me stumped.

so any help with this is appreciated (:

here is the DDS log;
