  1. Im trying to fix my friends computer, but to no avail. It seems that there is no background, and that the background feature seems to be disabled at the properties menu. I used avast and spybot to get rid of anything, it found 253 spybots, and 23 viruses. i got rid of all of them, but it still does nothing.

    It has :
    2.8 ghz p4
    512mb ram
    96 mb integraded vid card
    80 gig hd
    win xp home ed sp2

    Go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    I told spybot to run on startup, and it found 30 more spybots, upon removal, his background (and ability to change it) came back instantly.

    So all is well.

    I still recommend you post a HJT log, just in case there`s other malware on the system.

    Regards Howard :)
