Could someone help me get the display tab back in my desktop properties. When I right click on desktop and choose properties, the display properties box comes up with tabs for themes, screensaver, appearance & settings. None for desktop (to change wallpaper). I had the trojan smitfraud variant but I think I got rid of it with SuperAntiSpyware. I figure that is what caused it to disappear.

/Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then post a hijackthis log in THE MALWARE FORUM forum.
(Posting HiJack This logs in any other forum other than the malware forum is forbidden. If you post an HJT log in any other forum, it will be removed and it will take you longer to get help, so please make sure you only post HJT logs in the malware forum)

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread..

dsenette, I went and did the malware stuff and it cleaned the computer up but still didn't get display back so I downloaded SmitfraudFix.exe and it found traces yet of the variant and cleaned them and now I have the display back.

Thanks, tpep
