Hi everyone

I needed to use XP Pro disk to repair the OS. All is working fine, but there was a backround picture that a Spyware put there and I deleted it. Now I want to put a new piccture on it by clicking control pannel>> Display and there is no tab for "Backround" anymore. How can I have the picture back that I had before for the desktop backround?

Regards,


Nick

*Deleted* - You are using Windows 2000, and I didn't notice that until after I added the post. I quickly deleted it so you wouldn't screw up your machine using an XP registry fix for a 2000 machine.

Again my apologies.

One question, but the topic shows you are using XP but yet your Operating System underneath your name shows Win2000 SP4, and also you say you lost the BACKGROUND tab, which is a windows 2000 tab name and not a windows XP name. Which one are you using?

Aperently XP don't have a backround tab as was suggested so where does XP user setup backroubd? This frend useto be able to change his pictures but now when he clicks on "apply" it doesn't stick. He was attacked by "winhound".

The computer is not mine. I am helping a frend. He was attacked be "Winhound" and other spyware. I used Windows repair option on his disk. The spyware winhound has changed the wallpaper to a wabpage to click on for a spyware remover. I found the page then deleted it. Now the wallpaper is white. This frend use to be able to change his wall paper, but now when he presses "apply" it doesn't stick. Do you know a solution?
