My computer worked fine one day, the next day it started acting up without my downloading anything in the meantime. I can boot up in safe mode and everything works and I can access the internet, but when I restart in regular mode, none of the icons will open the programs, the buttons don't work, the touchpad does not work and the cursor eventually freezes with the little circle going round and round. I can reboot in safe mode with networking and everything works just fine. I transferred most of my files to an external hard drive, run Avast, run AdAware, downloaded Malwarebytes which found two Trojans which I deleted, eventually downloaded Combofix from your site and ran that. Nothing has cleared up the problem. I tried uninstalling some programs and got the message that Windows installer could not be accessed. So I downloaded Total Uninstall and was then able to uninstall them. I cannot run System Restore as I get the messaage that I have no restore point. When I go to system protection I see no prompt to create a restore point. I continually run my anti-virus programs and get no malware detected. I am running Vista Home Premium with Service pack 2, 32 bit. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
