Hi,

Im having problems with loading windows explorer. I think I got a virus from torrents that I was downloading. I ran scans with Malwarebytes anti-malware and NIS. Here's what came up in the last 2 malwarebytes scans:

I had the same problem after removing viruses using Avast!. Finally, after rebooting the computer, the desktop does not load. I pressed Ctl-Alt-Del to open Task Manager, then from File menu, I chose the New Task (run) option, I typed regedit and opened Windows Registry for editing. In HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\winlogon I noticed that the value for Shell was blank, so I typed C:\windows\explorer.exe. And the problem was solved..

I just registered only to thank you caesarhc! You saved me a lot of work and time. :pray:

And just in case someone else found this thread through a google search and your desktop also keeps blank after log on:
I had a trojan which was routing my explorer start-up through its own routine. Cleaning caused the virus to die, and my Explorer did not start anymore.
So you just have to set (for Vista)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
to C:\windows\explorer.exe (like caesarhc decribed it already- again thx!)
:wave:

oh... and so for resurrecting an old post....
