I was trying to clean up an xp-pro from some malware, and virus, I think I deleted something I shouldn't have ...
When booting it get to the background image of the user, but it won't display anything else, no icons, no start bar, nothing, the ctrl+alt+del does work, on the main user just a couple of processes show, while as admin and another user there are several processes showing, I can shut down from there.

I tried last good, but no luck.

What could have I done?

Thank you
