the background on my desktop is about an inch left of where it should be, the part that is cut off on the left side is in place on the right side. My screen is fine in all other applications. Also when I try to change my background through properties, the options browse, and the position dropdown box are greyed out, the text that reads background is also greyed.

I think there is a version of SmitFraud that will change the settings of your desktop background, not sure. Just wait for someone with the knowledge in this particular virus to come and reply here or move the topic to the correct forum.
you can always go here and take a look arround for a problem similar to yours.

Hi hkrinkle,

Sounds like you might have some type of infection. I would recommend you try the suggested fixes given here.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

If this fails you may need to post in the Hijackthis forum as instructed after you try the fixes.
