Fist off I am running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP2


Today I scanned for malware with "MalwareBytes" It detected some malware and I told it to remove the malware, some of the malware was in the memory so malwarebytes told me to restart my computer.

After my computer restarted it was at the welcome screen waiting for me to select a user to login.

I click my user (only user on the computer) and it said "Loading preferances" Or what ever text is under the icon when you select your user to login, it shows my wallpaper for a brief moment then immediately logs me out and I am back at the user welcome screen.

I've tried scanning for malware again and tried removing the malware but I still can't login.

NOTE* I can still boot in safe mode, right now I am in safe mode with networking while I am writing this.

Any suggestions?
