I recently found a stack of Trojans on my computer, and, after various stages of Removal, thought I had the problem set. It started by Disabling my Network Connections. So After Running AVG, AdAware, Spyware Blaster, and Winsockfix, finally got my Connection Back up. I ran a Trendmicro Online Scan and found/cleaned another handful of issues. I updated windows, and went on my way, with Connectivity back and everything.

Now all of a sudden, when I boot up, it locks at the desktop. When I mouse over the task bar, I get an Hourglass... Sometimes it pops up a taskbar alert that it couldn't load Network devices. I can't run any Icons off the desktop, and I cant access the start menu. I can open the TaskManager via Ctrl-Alt-Del.. but there';s nothing there to help me.

I rebooted into safe mode, and am runnign another AVG Scan, but it's not coming up with anything.

I can't even get tothe desktop to run a Hijack This! Log...

Any Ideas would be GREATLY Appreciated, as there is a lot of Time Sensitive MAterial on my laptop... =\

I moved your HijackThis log to the appropriate forum.
Here is the link:
nfmmalice's HJT log

Please, DO NOT make another post in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might think someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

Also, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it more difficult to properly clean your system.

Since you now have a HJT log posted, I'm going to close this topic.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
