Windows 7: Windows 7 Stops Start up and comand prompt window

Windows 7 Stops Start up and comand prompt window

I was recently hit by a bad virus and was able to remove however without some damage to my system. It is a Lenova ThinkPad laptop.

When my Windows 7 boots up to the sign in window, I am able to log in, the system starts up but stops at a command prompt window. I have to type in "explorer" then Windows starts, I close command window and all works fine.

I do not have access to my original Window 7 disks. How can I get past this?

Thanks in advance!
