I was on FB this morning and I was downloading a picture from a Like Page. (won't do that again!) Suddenly, my desktop picture was gone and it has been replaced with a black background and a lot of arrows, hearts, and other symbols and the words Facebook twice. The whole image is distorted and stretched out. I immediately ran a full Norton Anti-Virus Scan and a CCleaner.com scan. I ran Norton's NPE.exe file also. Nothing showed up. I haven't attempted to change the desktop background image as I want to know if something has infected my computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If you can please restore your desktop to the previous state then as a precaution I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Additional guidance;

1: Do not create a topic on the malware forum unless you have a malware issue that you cannot resolve yourself.
2: If you do need to start a topic there provide a link to this thread so that steps that have already been taken can be checked.
3: As the Malware Techs are extremely busy you may not receive an instant reply, if you have waited for three days then post in the Waiting Room http://www.geekstogo...e-waiting-room/ be sure to identify the issue as malware related and provide a link to your malware topic.

Good luck.
