To anyone that helps me fix this, thank you so much in advance. :thumbsup:

My problem seems to be quite simple. My desktop has been hijacked! (or so it seems) The wallpaper has disappeared and has been replaced with a blinking white-to-beige background. I have run programs such as Spybot, Adaware, Ewido, PandaScan, and HijackThis!. These have all found problems but, even though I get rid of the threats, this background just won't go away!

I don't know if this helps but I used to have a browser hijacker that I got rid of that went to some explicit site. That and probably this whole problem can be linked to my boyfriend's brother's XXX searching. :flowers:

I am using a computer with Windows XP.

If any more information is required, I'll be happy to provide it.

You should post a Highjack This Log. This link will take you to a detailed tutorial on how to post a log.


How to Post a Highjack This Log

Just please keep in mind that all Highjack This Team Members are volunteers.
One must practice a little patience, when waiting for help.
I promise you though that they will get to you as soon as they are able.

And above all do not attempt to work on your log yourself.
And only take the advice from an official HJT Team Member.

Which will show under thier name and avatar.

One more thing. Do not reply to your own post. As the Team keeps an eye out for zero replies. If they see a reply they will assume that someone is already helping you out. Then I'm afraid that you may get lost in the shuffle.

You will be in good hands. I can assure you. :thumbsup:
