Default ***serious Window Problem***

I'm on my brothers PC. Last night I was trying to download PowerDVD6's trial version, it said "First you must download DirectX".

So I download DirectX from Microsoft's site and it is installing and everything, when it finishes it starts to reboot like many programs do. When my desktop wallpaper comes back up it returns to the welcome screen where my icon is. So I can either load my personal settings to my desktop, or "Stand by, Shut down, Restart."

I clicked my icon, but all it does is show my wallpaper without my icons for about 20 seconds before returning to the screen with my windows icon.

The day before I uninstalled a program and I had to reboot afterwards, but I forgot and didn't do it. I dunno if that has to do with it. So basically I cannot log on my desktop settings.

Not Sure but Mabe,
Try booting it in to Safe mode and see if that works. If it does it should be fine on the next startup. Also while in Safe mode run Ad-Aware just incase its anything like that
