  1. hi!! when i recently started my computer, it dint follow the usual procedure of starting up. it asked for the password as it usually does, but further dint do anything. i mean nothing appeared on the screen and i had to start the applications with the help of task manager. now also it is not showing the desktop or start menu or anything else.. i ran a scan and deleted high risk files which included a worm.brontok.m and i also tried restoring the system. although the system is restored but still the desktop doesnt appear. please help. i cant even think of what the problem is...

    Hi abcde,

    Many times malware will Hijack your desktop

    Please have a read here-> Is your system infected? Read this before Cleaning or Formatting

    If you decide to clean your system please follow these Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and post back in this thread with the requested logs. There should be at least 3.

    1)AVG log
    2)Combofix log
    3)Hijackthis log (Step 15)
