Hello, this is the first time that I am posting something here. My problem is that my background (wallpaper) does not show up anymore. Instead it looks like there is some kind of serch engine or pop up but everything is white. I really don't know what this is and how I can remove it. I tried to end task but nothing comes up. I really need help.
