Windows 7: Windows 7 Start Up issue

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Windows 7 Start Up issue

So I got a few viruses, removed them all and my computer is clean.

I'll run you through my start up issue.

> Turn computer on
> Loads up
> Login Screnn Pops Up
> I sign in and it says loading
> It stays stuck here for about 35 seconds (used to go in right away)
> Whole screen is black, I can see the pointer and a little window that has 'Windows Script Host Settings' with a question mark and a red x.
> Nothing else loads up
> I press CTRL + ALT + DEL
> I press new task and type in 'explorer.exe'.
> Black screen goes away and computer is now usable

I've tried googling and everything I've tried hasn't worked.

MalwareBytes finds no more viruses, AdwCleaner also finds no problems.

Attached is 3 files that could be helpful to you from rKill & DDS.

How can I fix this, it's never happened before.

Try creating a new user account and see if logging in there fixes it. That's the only thing that comes to mind. If the new account works fine, just migrate to it.

Mate try what LAMDA has suggested and I would run these too
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

NB SFC best run for about three runs
