It took quite a bit of effort to remove this malware since the laptop(Windows Home Premium x64) would not load Safe Mode.  I should say Safe Mode loads but the malware screen prohibits me from doing anything like running antivirus software.  I now have the malware removed but Windows boots into command console, c:\windows\system32.  I can type explorer and then I can exit the command console and be on the desktop.  Once at the desktop the laptop works fine.  Any suggestions as to how I can bypass the command console and get directly to the desktop?  Windows Startup Repair found no problem and the Registry looks correct.    Thank you.

I use this method.... an has worked since XP.
1. insert bootable media
2. boot to an run setup
3. PAY ATTENTION NOW:
a. chose clean install. when ask
b. watch carefully and PAY ATTENTION.
c. at the 42% uncompress
1. remove media
2. force a REBOOT.

at the 42% this is exactly where the OS will be forced to read into and overwrite the old files with the Authorizy of Trusted which is what M$ is....
continue to allow the system to finish and when it auto reboots it should be exactly proper.... 99.9% of the time this is Final.

Old info provided by M$ to Beta Testers.... I pass this info alone with

WARNING; PAY ATTENTION TO DETAILS....

I recommend to re-build the system.  get a good backup of your data, profile and internet specifications and start over.  No sense worrying later if you got everything or not.  A rootkit is a possibility.
