For some reason, out of nowhere I have no desktop wallpaper. And I can't do anything about it. When I shutdown my comp, and explorer shuts down, my wallpaper still appears for about 2 secs before it completely turns off. I'm assuming it's some sort of ad or spyware, but nothing's showing up in my report after I scan. Please help, this is driving me NUTS! ha ha, any help at all is appreciated.

Here's a pic of my desktop and properties. As you can see it won't allow me to apply a wallpaper.

Well, I see limewire on your desktop, so you may of picked up something.

You should go to the malware forum and post a HJT log there.
