I had similar problem. Turn out to be monitor's fault. I've changed my monitor and everything was OK. Another problem it might be that the virus messed up the VGA drivers. Try to reinstall them.

There is no way a monitor can do that.

Does regedit work in safemode?

the easiest way would just be to format, or just do a repair installation, as who knows what else is wrong with the system.
if not just make sure you give the pc a good clean before you do anything else: antivirus, hijackthis, etc.

Well the only other option is to spend a long time doing this thing one file at a time. It's a lot quicker to just reformat and reinstall all your programs.
