Unknown virus?

Of course, I'm sure that most people that find their computer running rather oddly think they have an unknown virus. In my case, I'm just entirely behind on internet and computer security, and have no idea what might be wrong with my computer.

Symptoms:
Every two or three weeks I get Blue Screen of Death, after which my computer used to start right back up just fine. The only hint to what might be wrong is that it says the cause of error was a missing driver, although I haven't really touched any of the Windows files, and definitely nothing that would cause my system to shut down.

When starting up, my computer goes through the log in screen, and then has nothing but the mouse pointer for a good minute or so before loading the OS and desktop correctly. Given the specs of my computer, the lack of installed software, music, etc, I know that it should be loading much faster than this.

Just now my computer desktop froze while the rest of the computer is accessible. Other than the loss of a desktop and the right click function on the desktop only, the task bar, start menu and everything else works fine.


I've run multiple scans via Norton, AVG and Malwarebytes, but nothing has come up. Any ideas what to do next? Figured I'd take care of the problem now before losing all functionality on my machine.

Did a few other things...

Tried installing RegistryBooster, and while it said that it fixed my 209 registry issues, I think I'll be going to my refund..

Tried sfc /scannow in order to look for any of the potentially missing Windows files.

Downloaded HijackThis, and the following is the scan log.

After all of this, my computer is still taking quite a while to load, with the blank screen still being present for a good minute or so. Any help would be great!
