help - no desktop, taskbar visible- cant click on start menu

Unread postby precisionart » September 11th, 2008, 8:48 pm

Hello,

My computer froze today while trying to do an online scan with kaspersky. Now after numerous reboots and attempts to fix all i get is a blank desktop with a taskbar at the bottom. No programs begin to load and if i try to click on the start menu or anything else i just get the circle timer next to my mouse. I can move my mouse around though - yay! Sometimes the desktop does come up though (but with same other probs), sometimes completely blank. I am running vista 64. Here is my hijack this log:

Welcome to the Malware removal Forums. Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, please post a new HijackThis Log. Thank you for your patience.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.
