I've been fighting this xp2008 and thought I had most of it. Now i have an Anti-virus 2009 icon on my desktop and my background has been changed to control panel. I'm lost, and ready to give up! Can you please help me?
O.K. I did this..
Go to Start > Control Panel > Display. Click on the "Desktop" tab, then the "Customize Desktop..." button.
Click on the "Web" tab, then under Web Pages, uncheck and delete everything you find (except "My Current Home page").
These are some common malware related entries you may see:
found and deleted (Privacy Protection) and have my desktop back. Thanks for the info!
I still have the Smart Antivirus -2009 icon on my desktop and still get the search re-direct on my web browser (IE)
I know you are very busy so I'll keep reading and waiting. Thanks!
I am running Windows XP btw
If you need any other information, or if I don't have something set right to get replies, please let me know.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
