    I have a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 installed on it. Recently, my computer was attacked by a virus. As soon as I noticed, I turned off the computer manually, and booted back up in safe mode. I ran Avast, Ad-Aware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. All 3 found a couple of threats, which I deleted. I tried restarting my computer, and then running these 3 again in safe mode (with network). I did it as long as threats were found. Once the computer felt safe, I tried booting in normal mode.

    Here's the problem : I get to the "Welcome" page, and then everything goes black but my cursor.

    What's strange about the problem : For some reason, I did succeed to get it to open normally 2 or 3 times, but every single time it would be crazy laggy. Oh, and Internet Explorer wouldnt work either. It freezes as soon as I try to access anything.

    And now it's back to a black screen after the "Welcome" page when I try booting in normal mode. Only my cursor appears (I can move the cursor). Safe Mode works just fine too, only Normal mode has a problem.

    If any of you have an idea of how I could fix this, it would be more than appreciated.

    PS : sorry if somethings are unclear here and there, english is not my first language ;)
