One of my wonderfull roomates was on my computer enjoying himself shall we say...and because of that i got some viruses on my computer. I always run AVG. I used trendmicro and pandasoft virus scans. I actually found this site thru just a general search on google for help. My desktop was locked blue couldn't change anything. Read something that suggested ewido and i now use that. My computer is free of virus etc. Background was still blue. Did some more searching and wound up finding that i had to mess w/ regedit in order to get it fixed
and then deleted C:\Windows\Web\desktop.html
After i did that i was able to view my desktop again and change backgrounds (back to jessica simpson
one problem still remains tho. My icons are still surrounded by blue in the lettering and around the actual icon. I did a search and it looks similar to what would happen if you went to controll pannel>performance and maintenance>system>advanced>settings under performance and unchecked drop shadow icon. found a picture of the problem when i searched http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...c=40438&hl=icon
. the resolution to that problem was just the controll pannel issue. Im stumped as far as what to do next and seaching got old. been at this on and off for 2-3 days now and am throwing in the towel. I didn't delete or change any other values in the regedit. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Everything is functional just annoying now.
