When my computer starts up it does not load any programs it also made my wall paper blank. I tried a system restore and i even enabled every thing in msconfig on the start up tab. Any one have any idea how to fix it ?

Could be a few things, if you post your HiJackThis log maybe we can get a better understanding of your system but from the sounds of it you got some malware. Also are there any other strange symptoms happening?

What is a hijack log..im not sure what it is. The whole problem started a few days ago where my computer recmended a consistency check of drive c and from there it deleted files on its own. Now i get error messages telling me my login and documents cant open because they are corrupted. I am not able to get online and my anti virus and firewall wont start up anymore.

We can skip the HiJackThis log for now cause your problem sounds pretty serious. I would suggest testing your hardware (Memory/HDD) by running memtest86+ and the hard drive diagonstic tool created by the manufacturer of your hard drive or just use the one from seagate which works on most drives. All these tools will require you to make a floppy disk then restart your computer and boot into it. Any errors on either test means bad hardware. If everything passes without errors you may have a corrupt filesystem at which time you should go to command prompt (Start-Run-"cmd") and type "chkdsk c: /R /X" and it will probably tell you it needs to reboot to test which you should do.

I did the chkdsk c: /R /X and it fixed all the errors, but i am now left with a blank screen with minimum icons and i found my documents and everytime i try to change the wallpaper it wont switch and my startup utlities arent working. I will give the seagate a try though.
