    Hi. I've recently just reinstalled Windows on my PC due to a trojan infection (it was highly recommended by someone over at the Virus/Spyware section to do so) and now I've got a problem - this process called 'runonce' is preventing my desktop from loading.

    What happens is that once I enter my password to log onto my Windows user account, it shows a black screen and a cursor. I've tried waiting for 30 mins and it remains the same - my desktop only loads when I manually end the 'runonce' process from Task Manager.

    Now I've read that runonce is a windows process, so I doubt it's harmful, but what is going on? Why isn't my desktop loading automatically?

    I've attached a screenshot of my task manager at startup. Hope it helps.
