Recently my computer was hacked (I guess you could say) by Anti-Virus Gold and thanks to your guys' tutorial, I was able to delete it. But I'm still having some problems that might or might not be related. *shrug* Anyway...

1) When I go to change my desktop wallpaper, I click on browse and click on the file I want to open...and nothing happens. And there are also fewer wallpapers to choose from from the list. I can't figure out what the problem is. And I have changed my wallpaper thousands of times and I've never had this problem. It's really bugging me!!!

2) When I go to My Computer and view my thumbnail files, some are faded. It's really weird. This started happening when my computer was hacked.

3) This is kind of minor, but when I log onto my computer, Internet Explorer pops up for some reason. Again, it never did before. Oh, and the buttons on IE changed w/out me actually doing anything. *sigh*

So, can anyone help me? This spyware junk has really messed up my compy and it really pisses me off! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the help...

Hi I know not much help, but prehaps a complete reinstall is called for, or try reinstalling your systems disk that came with the motherboard.
Now installed Microsoft Security Essencials on my Tower with Windows Home Premium 32bit and Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop with Windows Home Premium 64bit
