Blue screen No Desktop

An AMD 1000Mz Win ME machine that I have which is Broadband connected has started to play up.

It boots up okay but will not launch the desktop. All I get is a blue screen, but the screen saver kicks in as norm so I suppose windows has loaded.

I have the 'Tiny' firewall installed with AVG. Do I have a virus?

During the weekend my search bar on IE was taken over by another which listed some Adult sites and when I got rid of this the machine played up.

All help appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you tried System Restore to before this happened?

Does the Windows key on the keyboard work to enable you to get in to any programs?

Ignore my first post!

Can you get it to start up in Safe Mode, then try System Restore.
