Hello Geeks To Go forum, nice forum! i appreciate the fact that you help for free :blink:

Anyway as you see in the topic title i'm having a problem.
I already knew i had some spywares but i didn't remove them cause i had no time, but yesterday a SpySheriff thing self-installed and scanned my computer, it caused me lotta problems so i had to remove it (and i noticed that it was a spyware, of course).
After removing it did some scanning with avast! Antivirus, Ad-Aware and TuneUp Utilities. I deleted infected files (there was W32:Agent-gen, Lager-T, Tibs-LH), some of those files was system files so i was worried...
then my desktop become blank and the wallpaper couldn't be changed, and at Startup my system now is a bit slowed down.
I found THIS on your forum and i said "Wow! Someone with my same problem spontaneously posted the solution! lucky!" but unfortunately it didn't work at all. I was able to restore the wallpaper but now is unchangable again, i use a program called Wallpaper Changer that changes my wallpaper every minute and it doesn't work anymore due to this problem.

What should i do?
Oh here's my HiJack, hope it will be helpful
[Sorry for my awful grammar and thanks in advance for :whistling:]
