I'm using Windows XP SP3. My problem is that after restart, it takes longer time to load and I don't get any response for any EXE file. Needlessly to say Kaspersky says starting in the beginning, but after 1-2 minutes of "starting" sign, it stops itself.
And the weird thing is all the icons on both bottom left and right sides are gone. I cannot see internet connection status, speaker/sound status icon, etc...
When I tried to use system restore function, it says, "System restore is not able to protect you computer. Please restart the computer and try again." So I did searched on the web to find what it is, and seems like it's infected. Some used Rkill to fix so I did use it, but couldn't fix it.
Could you kindly advise me what to do about it.
Also, I did used like 5 portable malware removal tools and Windows repair tool to fix it, but nothing helped.
Thank you in advance.
