Taskbar hidden, IE opens then closes immediately

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Ok I cannot seem ti figure out how to fix this problem.

For some reason the taskbar is a small line at the bottom of my computer.  When I try to increase the size, no luck.  When I try to open IE, it opens for a quick second then closes.  I'm pretty sure there is some sort of virus because a windows balloon keeps popping up saying that my computer is infected.  Norton is also not working.  Any thoughts on how to fix this?  I've attached a hijackthis log.
