After downloading some software, my laptop has been infected with some serious virus; now when I login to my computer, the taskbar flashes for a split second before it disappears. Also there is no icon showing on my desktop; all I see is the blank windows background. I have to start any application from the taskmanager's file/new task menu option. Please help. I tried to run regcure but it didn't help. I ran trendmicro's hijackThis and have a log (pasted below).
Can someone help, please?

please post your topic in the malware forum (a link in my list of programs below). Take all the preliminary steps. After the experts from the malware forum confirm that the computer is clean, and if the problem persists, post back in this forum. It might take some time because they are quite busy there.
