I've never had a spyware detector before today, and I just ran two of them (Spybot + AdAware) and found well over 1,000 infected files. What led me to the search was the other day after getting internet access (after a long spell withoutl believe most of the spyware came from the days when I had internet over a year ago) my desktop was changed to a webpage with a link to a .html that had been saved in my C:\Windows\Web\desktop.html. I deleted the file and now my desktop is white, flickering colors occasionally. The desktop picture only shows up immediately when logging on or off. When I go to Display, all that shows up are the Screen Saver and Settings, nothing at all for Desktop. No properties option to disable the webview. I can't get it to turn off the webpage like setting. I'm using XP package one. Is there anything anyone can suggest to help? I'd greatly appreciate it, this is highly annoying.

Also, I have a computer virus (which may be the culprit)

is infected with the Bloodhound.W32.EP virus.
Unable to repair this file.

is there any system operating errors that would come if I tried to delete this file?

Okay, that was taken from a post at a messageboard I frequent, which led me to here. I have installed all new updates for XP except for one Internet Explorer 6.0 that failed to install. I have run both spybot and adaware, and now I just downloaded HijackThis and ran it. Here is the log:

If anyone could provide any help at all it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not entirely computer illiterate, but am not used to having high speed access and was one of the naive who thought NortonAntiVirus solved every problem.

Now my subscrition to LiveUpdate expired a year ago and I can't afford to renew, so if anyone was going to suggest that, I'm afraid it must be a *this is the ONLY option to save your comp* kind of thing, because I just can't afford it. (BTW, I also turned my XP automatic Firewall protection thing on earlier after learning from friends how bad spyware can be. As indicated earlier, had over 1,000 corrupted files!! Some dating back ages ago)

P.S. Over two years ago I had highspeed access through comcast, now I'm using Bellsouth but my IE browser still shows and says comcast, is that okay?
