I recenty have acquired a small irritating problem that when I go to explore or internet explorer I
lose my desktop background, it changes to a virus or spy ware warning and wants me to go and
download those type of programs. I have also lost the desktop section of the display panel in control panel
I have run spybot,MS antispyware beta, registry fixer, norton antivirus and several other same type programs but none has found any problems. Oh, I am using XP pro, I have also tryed starting in safe mode and running these programs some ran and some won't, but still didn't find anything. I have a prtscreen of the warning but cant figure out how to get it in this note. Any help would be appreciated

Click here to download HijackThis by Merijn Bellekom. Doubleclick the file, click Unzip and extract the application to C:\HijackThis. Run it from there to scan your computer.

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button. Save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All and post it here for examination. Don't fix anything yet as most of what it lists will be harmless.
