Cant get into windows

Windows 7 pc had trojan's.

Ive run Malwarebytes
Hitman pro
Roguekiller
Combo fix
ESET on-line scanner
CCleaner

Now the pc wont load windows properly.
Just a mouse curser and black screen

When I ctr, alt + del and attempt to bring up task manager
I get "taskmgr.exe application error"

any ideas?

in such cases, i found it always better do a fresh install from the start - it saves time in the end  + you're sure to have a correct OS
backup your data first

Will it load in Safe Mode?   If so, how about a System Restore?

If you have the Windows 7 DVD, try to boot from that and see if there is a Repair option for you.

Before doing this, you might want to remove the drive to a carrier and back it up first.

Go into safe mode with command prompt.  Then type rstrui.exe and hit enter.  Choose an earlier restore point.  If this works, this'd be the easiest solution.

Otherwise, you could try an anivirus rescue disk approach.  Use one of these:

You may do better to run an offline AntiVirus and then see if you have access to your System.

If you create a Bootable thumb drive for either of these products it can be updated later on and reused.

Download create and run Defender Offline

or another alternative

Download the Kaspersky Rescue Disk iso image from the Kaspersky Lab server, either create the Rescue Disk on USB or Burn to CD/DVD.

I agree with nobus, a fresh install is your best bet.  As suggested make sure you backup all your data first.  If you can't access the disk normally, use an UBUNTU distribution to boot from (download ISO and burn) and then copy all files to another drive.  When that is done reinstall the OS.
