Yeah I think I have a malware or something and I think it's a registry problem but I have no idea where to look. I'm getting a flashing of a yellowish greyish background and I can't even right click on it to check the properties. There was a display about my computer being infected so when I went to Control Panel to change the desktop, I get this flashing background. Any ideas?
