Hello all, i am hoping someone can help me with this.

I ended up majorly infected with trojans, spyware, clicksearchclick and some other fun goodies yesterday, from visiting sites i probally shouldnt be on. I finally managed to get everything cleaned up and going smooth again, which i will note wasnt easy! Well part way thru the cleaning my desktop background went blue and isnt showing now. I have a Nvidia GEForce FX 5600 videocard and dual monitors. When i got into the videocard software for the dual monitors it shows both monitors and allows me to change the backgrounds but they dont show up on my screens.

When i click on the desktop/properties/desktop i can see all the desktops shown, but cant click on them, or anything. I noticed today that when my screen saver is running, and i move my mouse to enter my system, it brings up the password page, and the backgrounds show on both monitors, but once i enter my password and enter the system they are gone.

I have attached the info from my HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
part of my registry like i had seen on a message like this.

Im hoping someone can help.

Thank you.
Ken

you did not save that correctly.

Did you export from the registry? That is not a reg file, but a text file.
