Black Screen with windows scripting host after run malwarebytes

Recommended Posts


I had a close encounter with some malware and I runned malwarebytes. It cleaned the malware but now whenever I login into windows I get a black screen with the mouse cursor and on the bottom left a window (just the title) that show as Windows scripting host on the task manager. 

I can do Ctrl, Alt, Delete, and call the task manager. If I create a new task and put explorer.exe on that task the desktop, toolbar, etc appear and I can use the machine normally.

I've created a new profile and the new user as the same problem.

I'm running windows 10 and don't have any restore point prior of running malware bytes.

Any help would be appreciated so I can avoid formatting the PC.
