:) OK, I know this has surely been brought up before but I must ask it again. I had some spyware program install on my computer (without my permission of course~ :tazz: ) I have since got rid of it (I believe) and I am running Norton Internet Security 2006 with all the goodies that go with it. The desktop is reading Spyware Infection, your system is infected with spyware etc...blah blah blah! with a blue background. I have tried to go in and change the desktop back to no avail. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it and thank you in advance :)

Well Norton Internet Security 2006 is not the best program to use because it has to many bugs. I dont have an answer to your question but try lavasoft it might help.

ok, I have done everything that it explains on the site and I just had a start button screen come on and something type mspain in the box (I was not even near the computer) so of course I am very worried. Please advise with any help if you can and thanks in advance.

**I have used ad-adware SE, spybot, Ewido and finally hijackthis plus all windows updates are complete.

Have we solved this one? I have it too on my login. My wife's login is fine. So it has something to do with my startup or services. Haven't pinpoiinted it yet.

This is what I did:

Started Regedit (start -> run -> regedit), went to 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System' and erased the entry 'Wallpaper'.

Thats all, now the problem is solved.

This Was taken off Bullguard from someone =) i just wanted to pass on the word and help out =) it worked for me =)

Remember to make a security copy of your registry before trying anything.
