Need some help with my background and Icons on my desktop. I had a virus that was removed with my Symantec Antivirus but seemed to have left something. My Background changes colors from Grey to White depending on where the cursor is placed and my Icons on the desktop are highlighted. I ran Ad-ware SE Personal, AboutBuster and CWShredder214 with no help. Here is the HiJackThis Log. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

It seems the I found a solution. My computer was running extremely slow. I hard booted it and when the desktop came up it had several items prompting me to verify if I had made changes to my Desktop. One was the change the Desktop web page and delete it. Here is what I did:

-Right click on the background
-Go To Properties
-Click Desktop Tab
-Click Customize Desktop
-Click Web Tab
-Highlight unwanted pages in the Web Pages Box
-Click Delete

My Background imediately went back to the original option.

Thank you for all your help. :tazz:

You still need to run the adaware. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.
