Hi, yesterday, my background wallpaper on my desktop unexpectedly changed from the picture of my dog to a blue screen that said "You should run an anti Virus check" or something like that. A few seconds later it changed to a red screen with the same text. Finally after a few seconds, it changed AGAIN, and ever since then my wallpaper has been some dark blue thing with light blue swirl designs, and pop-ups. I can't exit the pop-ups, I think they're part of the wall paper. Also, right clicking and going into properties doesn't help. I can't change the background...all the options are greyed out. Can anyone help? I've run a lot of anti viruses, and gotten rid of some other symptoms, but the pop-up background is still there, and the options to chnge it are greyed out. Thanks in advamce, Ian.

Also, sometimes when I have more than two broswer windows open, the deskbar (Blue thing along the very bottom, with start button/time and stuff, don't know the real name) and icons will dissapear, and even task manager won' do anything. Restarting is the only option when it happens. SuperANTI spyware has detected and deleted a bunch of things with "vundo" in the name. What's a vundo? Thanks, Ian
