Greetings! Sorry my first post is a plea for help rather than a proper greeting or some advice!

About midnight CST on Dec. 27, my desktop image went from one I had selected months ago to a blank screen. I went to the display properties and saw that all the options are inaccessible (grayed out). I could scroll through the themes, but all the desktop images in the themes are blank as well.

I ran msconfig and unchecked a couple entries that I found suspicious (including xpupdate). I also went to windows task manager and manually shut down processes (again, like xpupdate). I rebooted my system, but still no go.

I ran ad-aware and removed the few things I saw, but none of them were anything major (mostly data miners). Again I rebooted, just to check. No success.

I downloaded HijackThis and have copied the log. It is as follows:

I've consulted other online forums, but have had no success with the vague suggestions offered.

The desktop is just blank. No words, no warnings, no "ha ha, you have spyware you dolt!" I'm stymied. Any suggestions (or fixes, especially!) would be most welcome!

Thanks!
