Many forms of spyware change your desktop wallpaper, often times they say something to the effect of "Your computer is infected..." Tho I have come across some that just change the wall paper to something else.

Head over to themalware forum and see if they can help you, but be sure to read this first.

i've already posted there still waiting for them to get around to me but it hasn't been 3 days yet....i did get a virus,malware, etc...but i think i've cleaned a majority of it out. Was hoping there was a quick fix for the desktop issue, guess not :)
