I had the Internet Security 2010 virus, I found out about Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from this forum, and it got rid of the virus (THANKS!). Uninstalled my mcafee and installed AVG, now I'm trying to set a desktop backgound.
But when I go to display properties-desktop-browse and find a pic the apply botton isn't highlighted. All it will let me do is use the standard 14 XP backgrounds.
Need some help.
Thank Mike

HAve you tried moving the pictures to the my pictures folder in my documents? That should automatically add them to the list of available wallpapers.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

It's also possible that you could still be infected. You might want to post in Am I Infected.
Our malware removal experts can help you determine if this is the case.
If you decide to post there, go to Tidiness, include the link to this topic and request that it be closed.
In order to be effective, it's best that only the malware topic be open.

After your system is declared clean, you can go back to Tidiness and ask that this one be re-opened if the issue remains unresolved.
