So it all started when the Pc was infected with 2 worms. After deleting them, the Pc would go into a log in, log off loop. Logged in and then it would automatically log off. So i edited the registry to point to c:windows\system32\userinit.exe and copied wsaupdater to userinit.exe. The loop is now gone but no there are no icons or start menu. I can get the task manager and run things from there but that's it. Same thing happens in Safe mode. Help!
