    Well I had just downloaded Moosoft and scanned for trojans. I found 21 or something trojans. Well I was going to surf the web, but my computer was messing up. So, I restarted and it now will not start up all the way. All I see is my desktop. I pressed ctrl+alt+delete and viewed what was running. Explorer was running for about 3 seconds and then closed. I've restarted my computer about 15 times in normal, Safemode, and step-by-step confirmation. And the results are the same: just a desktop.

    I did notice something strange just before this problem happened. When my computer was "messing up". And that was there were about... 4 nameless folders that I deleted right after the trojan scan, right before I restarted. I do not know if this has any relevance to my problem or not.

    Can somebody please help?

    Have you run your anti-virus lately, have you tried doing a system restore?,do you have spy-bot and ad-aware installed on your computer?

    It could be possible that the nasties that were on your computer have scrambled your computer up something terrible. Reinstalling might be the only option... I'd see what other people have to say about it though.
