My computer will no longer boot up properly. I'm running windows xp

It loads up but only the wallpaper no icons or task bar.
I can't right click and it takes a while before ctrl, alt, and del will work. I've tried doing new task > explorer.exe and it has worked a few times but it's restricted. For example my second hard drive wouldn't load (only an egg time and then nothing) The browsers worked at first but the last few times again nothing. It seems to freeze a lot with the egg time :-/

System restore I've tried about 5 times and it hasn't worked. I'm not sure if this is Malware, Trojan or my hard drive is dieing. I'm pretty sure I have some virus's but I don't know if that's the problem.

I'm only able to use windows in safe mode now.

here is the HijackThis log from safe mode

Any help you can give me would be very much appreciated.

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 an OTListIt log in THAT forum.
