Hi.
I got this wallpaper that was unremovable, and it said something like, warning you have spyware infected on our computer. so i searched this up on google,

what i did in safe mode was
Run Smitrem
Scan with Ewido
clean with CCleaner

after i restarted again in normal mode. Now my wallpaper is white, and it still will not go away. My real wallpaper shows up only at startup/shutdown.
I tried resetting my desktop settings, but going to display, desktop, customize desktop, and web. There is something there called Desktop uninstall that will not go away even when i keep deleting it.
I think my computer functions normally otherwise... But i want to get rid of this problem, as soon as possible.
can any one help please?
Thanks.

Great news and congratulations on fixing the problem yourself!
Do you still need your HJT log worked? If not, then I will delete it from the queue.
Thanks,
John
