Alrighty, well this just started happening last night, but it seemed that as I was browsing www.funnyexam.com to get some laughs my computer just froze, as in nothing was responding, everything was running extremely slowly, I couldn't even get taskmanager to show up even though I executed it. So I restarted my computer, and what happened next was after I logged on, my computer would start up a few start up applications, my desktop would show up, but then my computer would just flat out freeze. My cursor wouldn't move, nothing would be running, the spinning "A" avast! logo would stop mid-spin, and I couldn't ctrl+alt+delete.

So I tried restarting again, and this time I just left the screen at logon and lo and behold, I couldn't do anything. Again I couldn't move my cursor, the keyboard would not respond, and the blinking line for text would stand still.

After numerous restarts, I concluded that shortly after logon, the computer will just freeze. I can boot in safe mode just fine, and in doing so I was able to get rid of some viruses that I saw were lurking in my system. I thought doing this might solve the problem, but I still was left with a freezing system when I tried booting normally.

I've tried to run system restore through safe mode, but that seems to do absolutely nothing. What else could I do?

You said you had some viruses? If you think you have a virus you should check out the virus removal part of the forum.

No no no I was mentioning the viruses in that when I removed them, it didn't change the whole freezing thing at all.

Johnny Tootall is correct -

You may think you've deleted them all - but there may be still some left on the system.
Move to the Malware Forum and read the stickies located at the top, especially this one.
The guides will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. Then you can post a HijackThis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. Only after a three day wait may you move to The Waiting Room where you will be on the top of the list to be helped.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
