Good morning. My dh recently got SpySheriff and I followed your directions to remove it. Worked perfectly! Only problem I have now is I cannot set any background/wallpaper on my signon. I am stuck with the Windows blue background. Prior to this I had a picture of my son as my background. I tried right-clicking the desktop and it wont allow me to access the list of wallpapers. I also tried my usual method of choosing a pic and setting it as the backdrop, all to no avail. I know this sounds so trivial, but I just dont know what to do. Please bear with me as I am a middle aged sahm and dont know much about computers.

Hello skullypuss and welcome to BleepingComputer.

There may be bits of SpySheriff left, but before we run the whole fix, let's try this:


Download smitfraud.reg to your desktop.
- Double click the smitfraud.reg icon on your desktop.
- When it asks if you want to add the data to the registry, say Yes.


Go to the Control Panel and do the following:

- Click on the Display item.
- Click on the Desktop tab.
- Click on the Customize Desktop button.
- Click on the Web tab.
- In the Web Pages area:
--- Remove the checkmark from each item in the box.
--- Click on each item in turn and click the Delete button.
- Click the Ok button.
- Make any changes to your Desktop, Background and Themes that you want and then close the Display dialog.

Can you configure your desktop now?
