When I started the computer normally, it seemed to be slower. (I wasn't exactly sure because the family computer is probably around eight or nine years old.) Also, for some reason, the desktop icons disappeared. When I saw this, I restarted the computer in safe mode and ran a few scans, but neither the desktop or the taskbar would appear. This actually happened before, but they would always appear eventually. When my older brother saw this, he told me to just make a new user since we didn't need any of the files on the old one. (My two younger brothers only really surfed the Internet and played MapleStory.) On the new user, the desktop and taskbar appeared, but the computer ran noticeably slower. Also, when I shutdown, the same Blank Window 2 windows and hello4.exe alerts appeared. I started the computer normally again. And while I was using it, I became unable to run Internet Explorer. When I started in safe mode, I was still unable to use Internet Explorer, so I decided I needed help, which is why I'm posting here.
