I recently had a virus that took over all my administrator controls and changed my desktop to a red screen saying "Danger: Infection, purchase security software now", obviously trying to get you to give them your money to make it better. I got rid of the bug and all the controls and options were set back to normal except for my desktop. There's a weird white sliding thing that you can move to cover the whole background or just about an inch:
