After a recent power outage, my PC rebooted but there was no Start Menu, No Icons, No Desktop. ALT+CTRL+DEL, let me bring up task mangers, and so far all other programs run OK. Bootup/login is slow.

- There are no events in the system or application logs.
- Ran sfc /scannow (with Windows XP Home non-SP CD.)
- I have Avast Anti-virus updated 5-17-07, a full scan found no virus.
- I ran Spyboy Search & Destory updated 5-17-07, found alexno, or something, and removed it
- Ran Ad-aware 1.6? found some stuff, removed it.
- Reinstalled Windows XP SP2 overtop of itself, worked, but no improvement
- Ran Windows XP Service Pack 2
- Ran Internet Explorer 7 install
- Ran smitrem.exe, waited for cleanmgr.exe, still nothing.
- Ran through the http://www.geekstogo...-Log-t2852.html forum.
- I was unable to run the online panda scan
- I was unable to run Windows Update, as I can not access Web Pages, due to IE will not stay running.

If I run explorer.exe from the task manager, I see my start Menu and icons for a milisecond and explorer.exe closes.

I have this forum I started which goes over some of the above steps if you are interested, however, I am starting this forum for Help with Malware, as this is what I am being told to do.

Here is the link to my other forum.

Hello All,
Ping...

I know its a Friday, but please help!

It has been all day and no one has any ideas? I could really use some help from some Computer Gods? Are there any out there?

Your help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks,
Jay
