My Desktop wallpaper was hijacked some time ago by some nasty ass virus or something. I was unable to access the internet for a couple days due to "re direction". I fixed that. I eliminated all the graphical interruptions to my wallpaper, but I am still left with a "blank" white field that covers my desktop wallpaper picture. I have ran all the necessary programs and am posting my log. PLEASE HELP! I am at a loss. This all originated with the Firggin' "security.html" hijacker/virus. It was a bear, but, I am up and running!

Hi there!

First thing to do is load the latest version (1.98.1) of HijackThis at this location and post a new log. You're using an out-of-date version.

Also, was that the entire log you posted? I noticed it seemed awfully short.

Hey VashonDude sorry to interupt,

tyoneon, Once VashonDude has helped you remove the leftovers. Right click on your desktop, goto properties. Click on the desktop tab and click Customize Desktop. Click on the Web tab. Highlight Security. Click delete.. Then apply. That should patch up your white web page on your desktop problem.

And when i fake installed myself it WAS a bear to remove.

:p Thanks Ducky! God, what a relief. I was beginning to feel incompetent! I had to go through "control panel" and "display properties" to get the fix in. (in case anyone else is having this problem). "right clicking" the background attempted to lacate the missing .html document. Thanks to you too "VashonDude". I didn't realize I was out of date. By the way, is that Vashon Island, WA? I am from Seattle, and my wife works on the Ferries.
Thanks again guys!
