Dear all, First may I congratulate for such a great forum, I used it many times, found it very useful and helpful and learned quite a bit from it too. I just joined now and am basically a new member. I have my friend's PC with Windows XP. Yesterday he opened a website which downloaded a trojan and forced him to download an "anti-virus" which installed even more crap on his PC. The PC got very slow, crashed and when trying to restart, the desktop icons won't show up. Now the PC is booting up but the desktop background is gone and is all black. From the Display Properties you cannot change the background. I removed some strange programs like MyWebSearch for example, from the startup in MSCONFIG but still the problem persists. After a scan with AVG anti-virus few trojans were being found and all deleted. Ad-Aware did not find any spyware neither. I tried them on SAFE MODE and also HiJackThis on SAFE MODE. Here is a log from HiJackThis maybe someone could find anything wrong and tell me what to fix please. ========================================================= Looking forward to recieve some solutions, thanks.
