When I start-up my computer (Sony Vaio desktop), Windows Vista (Business Edition) start-ups and then, just at the point when the desktop usually displays, the screen remains black.

I can't use the mouse and CTRL+ALT+DELETE doesn't work.

I have spent about 10 hours trying to find a resolution. I have tried several different spyware checkers, software to help with Windows bootup etc.

I have tried all the usual procedures such as System Restore and Windows Repair, but nothing works. I have also tried booting up from the Windows Vista CD, but the repair/fix on that doesn't work either.

I have tried all the steps suggested here on the forums including Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

I can start-up in Safe mode.

Can anyone help please?

Here is my report from HijackThis if it's of any use:
