Windows XP Desktop Goes Blank

Recommended Posts

I had a virus yesterday where when I google searched something, then clicked a result, it would just redirect me to some random webpage. When I went to use malwarebytes it could not find the mbam.exe. Since I have had that problem before and you guys helped me out, I refollowed the same steps to get it back working. After scanning the computer and finding a couple of Trojan viruses and cleaning the computer. Now when I start my comp, right in the begin it will look like it is starting up, but then all of my desktop icons disappearand I can't do anything. The bottom bar is also not the blue XP color it is a light grey. When I Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart it says that explorer.exe is not responding to End Now. My comp is fine in Safe Mode. Any ideas? Thank you.

Thank you for the quick reply. I started your steps and downloaded the Avira, however when I begin the installation. All of a sudden when the install bar is half full it just dissapears and stops installing it. Any Ideas. Thank you
