    I have a similar issue to this thread http://forums.techguy.org/virus-other-malware-removal/945975-no-startup-applications-any-kind.html

    Basicaly as in that thread i have a black screen with just a cursor. Accessed the web via task manager. The black screen occured straight after i downloaded Avast (To replace AVG which has been warning about a virus but could not resolve it).

    I followed the istructions from [​IMG] CatByte, except when i try to call up Controll Folder...nothing happens *It does not open up). I am aware i havea virus of some sort, but if there is anyway to get my desktop back and possibly remove the virus then id very much appreaciate any advice you may have.

    Someone else suggested a reboot. Im not sure this would work but no way to fund out as im not sure where to initiate a reboot since i cant open controll panel aps due o virus in folder.
