Well recently, my computer is acting strange

When I log in, it won't show the start menu (desktop). I can't use ctrl+alt+del either. Nothing works except the mouse.

I'm on safe mode right now. This should indicate there is nothing wrong with my harddrive right?

What's the problem!!!

Virus, other malware?

Since you can boot to Safe Mode, use System Restore to go back to a date before this problem started happening, see if that fixes it.

System Restore does not work. Just did that (I set it to yesterday since this first occured to me today).

EDIT I'm running a virus scan as we speak

DO NOT post HijackThis logs here

You have malware, so go read the Sticky Threads in the Malware Removal forum and follow the steps there
