Screen goes black after login

  1. After logging in to my computer, the screen goes black with only the cursor showing. I am able to start the task manager, and start the command prompt. I can then start explorer.exe and load windows as normal. I tried two system restores to different points, both of which failed.

    I have tried to run avast! which results in the following error:

    "Unable to start scan.
    There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper."

    I have also run dkschk /f /r before restarting, and the problem continues.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    avast! uninstalled since it seemed to do no good, avira installed and now running. (Luke Firewalker?!?)
