What programs will NOT uninstall? Any info you can give will help us help you.
Two good programs to scan with are in the links below. Please let us know the results.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Spy shredder removal instructions in link below.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/98791/how-to-remove-spyshredder-or-spy-shredder-removal-instructions/

The two programs I listed in my first post are free for the home user to use. You should follow up with them after using the Smitfraudfix in the above link.

Have you reviewed the instructions for using Smitfraudfix in that link? If there is anything you need to ask about those instructions, just ask.

Super Antispyware will remove a lot of smitfraud malware. The link for that is in my first post. Be sure to run it in safe mode.
I am assuming you only ran the Smitfraudfix tool.

If after running Super Antispyware you still have Spyshredder, go back to the Smitfraudfix instructions and review the manual removal. Follow steps 1 thru 17.
If that doesn't remove Spyshredder then try the program Rogue Remover in the link below. The problem is that Smitfraud changes the file locations/names daily and the removal programs are always a step behind.

Right click on your desktop and choose properties. Then choose desktop and see if your old desk top is in the selection.
Have you ever seen the images from the site below? If not, check them out. There are some really great images there that you can use for backgrounds.

I take it you got your background back. Good.
There is one more thing you can do. Set a new restore point. The restore points on your computer are infected and if you need to restore at a later date you could reinfect your computer. It just takes a minute to do. The tutorial for that is in the link below if you need it.

Turn off system restore. This will remove all restore points since some are infected . Turn system restore back on.
