My kid has picked up just about every kind of virus and spyware there is on the internet. This last 1 I haven't seen before. I got rid of the actual program data wich covered his desktop. Now he's left w/ just a grey desktop. U can see his wallpaper behind it around the edges. His icons show through, so he still has full use of everything, but again he can't see his wallpaper because it's behind that whatever it is. Any idea what it is and or where it might be located so i can get rid of it?

We need a closer look at what's happening.
Please download Hijack this
Copy it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
