Hello, my computer is in a pickle at the moment. For some reason I was infected with some sort of virus/trojan/adware that slowed/completely stopped loading some websites such as google/yahoo and it also kept giving me some popup ads. I tried many scans to get rid of the problem but to no solution. And to make matters worst after one of my scan it sent my computer in chaos. The desktop doesn't load up while an application error message informs me that my userinit.exe failed to initialized properly and which goes the same for my cmd.exe, find.exe, etc. The only way I can fully load my desktop is to manual run task explorer.exe. Any advise? A complete format is the last option... Hopefully which doesn't ocurr.

Hello Robbster!

You wouldn't happen to have made a restore point before this problem started happening? If it was a system setting change the restore point should fix it, or if you have a backup and restore program such as Acronis True Image ect...

I would recommend also going to the Malware Removal Forum Here and posting a HijackThis log so the experts could help you because it may be a Spyware problem.

I don't have a restore point so that is not an option sadly. :) But, thank you, I will post in the correct forum.
