Press ctrl+alt+del to bring up the task manager. Verify if there is a process called avenue.exe if so, you may check out http://www.auditmypc...cess/avenue.asp

This means you possibly have a worm called Paved. You would need to go to the Malware forum and get help from a Malware Expert.

Did you say: AVG?? Do you refer to Anti-Virus GOLD??? That is the worst infection I have ever heard of!! (mostly because it is the ONLY infection I have ever had)

The program instals itself fromout nowhere and it is hard to delete. I never promted to install that program and it installed itself including lots of other spyware. Thanks to this forum, I could delete the program yesterday, but I kept the background. After some personal tweaking, which I will not reveal due to authority problems, I managed to delete the background.

I'm hoping that he's talking about the AVG Free, not Anti-Virus Gold, two diff programs, however both are virus scanners. AVG Free is actually a pretty decent one made by Grisoft. Maybe you should check it out at:

But if you are convinced that this is a malware issue, please move your post to the Malware Forum.

Well, at school I had to clean out a computer that was infected with tons of spyware (really tons, it was an infection that really smashed the harddisk, I had to replace the harddisk, infect the pc again and then clean it again. One of the infections was AVG. I think THAT one kept creating the stuff I deleted. And when I killed AVG on start-up and at services everything kept clean, I could then HTIMAN-PRO my way out of that [bleep], but kept the flashing background. I found my way to delete it, but this topic is now seen as Malware stuff, so it's outside my authority.
