  1. Hey,
    I'm wondering why my desktop background is happening to have something on it. The first time it had follow the finger background but If I click on it it goes to the website.So I restarded my computer and it wasnt there no more. That was all yesterday. Today I was also in my computer I was doing what I usually do be in the internet. Then when I minimized my background it was blank and has on the left corner something about poker.How can I get rid of this? Is this a virus or spyware problem.


    also my computer is being really slow. How can I make it faster?


    I'm usin a compaq windows xp.


    thanks in advance

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your computer may indeed be infected with spyware etc.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log into this thread, only after doing the above.

    I have moved this thread to our security and the web forum.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    HJT(HijackThis) Is a small utility that allows us to see what programmes and processes etc are running on your system. This is very useful for finding and eliminating spyware etc.

    You will find a link and instructions for using and posting your HJT log, in the link I gave you.

    Regards Howard :)
