Desktop Theme Virus

Unread postby WilliamNori » June 18th, 2010, 9:07 am

When I turned my pc on this morning a different background (flames) appeared. When I checked the desktop folder it had windows xp (modified) themes selected. I changed it back to the normal original windows xp theme. But if I right click on parts of the desktop and properties in some places I get windows xp(modified) and others just the windows xp. So it seems like there are two screens running maybe, I tried making the correct screen smaller to see if I could see behind it and I can't see anything. I have AVG running, did a SCAN and nothing came up. I also checked in appearances that no web pages were ticked etc.
Here's my HT log

Hi.

May I ask what this computer is used for? My research leads myself to believe it may be for business related activities. If I may draw your attention to the below portion of this forums policy:-

I'm afraid by your own admission of you do use the machine periodically for business related activities. I'm sorry, neither myself nor this forum can provide any assistance per the policies we have in-place. So please respect this, thank you.

My best advice would be to take your computer to a reputable local IT Repair Centre.

Therefore, this topic is now closed.
