Background Wallpaper Spyware Virus

I was hit with the Spyware / Trojan virus which overlays the background wallpaper with a black screen that displays a large“Warning You’re in Danger” notice that your computer may be infected with spyware. This
virus also places a yellow “!” mark sign as a tray icon which pops up a balloon every other minute that states Microsoft has determined that your computer does not have antispyware protection. The virus also connects to the internet automatically. This is the same virus that member MATTBUFC describes in his post on Mar. 14, 2005.

I was able to eliminate this attack using the Microsoft Antispyware Beta 1 program. However, though the program got rid of the tray icon and eliminated the background wallpaper message, it still left behind a gray screen which overides / overlays the applied background wallpaper display setting. The control panel display setting shows the background wallpaper I had applied prior to this attack but it does not appear on screen. Changing the wallpaper has had no effect. The gray screen still appears and will not go away.

Member THATMAN posted a remedy to MATTBUFC’s request for a way to eliminate this bug. I was attempting to follow THATMAN’s proceedure when I realized that my system was void of the files his solution was suggesting needed to be fixed or deleted. Apparently, my Beta program was able to correct these issues and eliminate the virus but unable to reset the background wallpaper.

Does anyone have a suggestion to help me fix this issue?
