    Run HJT again, and remove these two entries

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lphcvwwj0endv] C:\WINDOWS\system32\lphcvwwj0endv.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SMrhcrwwj0endv] C:\Program Files\rhcrwwj0endv\rhcrwwj0endv.exe

    Browse to these dirctories
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\lphcvwwj0endv.exe....Delete this file "lphcvwwj0endv.exe"
    C:\Program Files\rhcrwwj0endv\rhcrwwj0endv.exe.......Delete this folder "rhcrwwj0endv" (It contains the unwanted file).
    Update and run Spybot S&D. Apply Immunization, and remove what ever it finds in the scan.

    Are you having any issues with desktop wallpaper, and a screen saver displaying fake system alerts?
    If so go to "C:\Windows", and delete any bitmap image, and screen saver file with similar names like the ones above.

    If there are any other problems let me know.

    Are all the other issues solved?
    Spybot S&D should solve the background problem. if not let me know.
    For now you should be able to change it by right clicking an image, then select, "set as background".
    I still want to know if the tabs have returned to your display menu
