I have Windows XP. Everytime I turn on my computer, my desktop icons and start menu disappear. I can get them to reappear for a couple seconds by opening the task manager. I tried a system restore but wasn't given an option for a date earlier than the problem first occured. What can I do? Thanks in advance.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
