Hi

I've just managed to clean my pc for spysheriff and other problems, but my desktop background is still not good. Yes, i managed to remove the "Spyware infected" sign, but i cannot change background as the tab for it in Properties is greyed out. I can only change color.
After reading other posts, i saw many recommended using this regfix file, either it was pasted in or linked with zip files. I tried all versions of them, but i never got the "do you want to merge...?" when opening it after saving it. I haven't gotten any prompts at all when opening regfix. Therefore i guess the file hasn't gone in to effect, and my background is therefore still unchangeable.
or so i think...
If anyone could help me, it would be great!

And i might also have a virus called VBS.Gaggle.E@mm and VBS.Gagggle.D
I read about them on Symantec, says amongst other things that it wipes out the whole computer on 6th, 28th and other dates every month. Is this true? Am i in danger of being affected? Seems like an old virus (2004)...


Sorry for posting two problems at once, this is my first one ever...
