I ran Adwcleaner.  There were 41 issues.  I accepted the recommendation for cleaning and rebooted.  Windows mounts and I log on with my password, but the desktop does not appear.  I ran task manager to get CMD.   I can see my folders are still there and so are the WINDOWS directory, but the desktop does not appear.  The mouse icon is the only thing that displays.   I searched the forum, and found something similar for a WIN 8 OS  but I have WIN 7 professional.  It may take me a bit to turnaround responses.

I rebooted this morning,  logged on to windows, and got the same blank desktop.  It took about 1 minute, the CMD screen flashed by and the desktop reappeared.  

I left the machine running some hours, no changes.  I have rebooted, the desktop does mount.   I would like to know why the desktop picture and icons with explorer ribbon or command tray, all are not visible.   Is there a process still running from Awdcleaner?  Can there be an indication of needing to wait while a process completes?  It gives me less confidence in the products.  Will this happen again?


Log file attached as requested.  I was not clear, but @Telos moved the post to this new forum directory.
