    I had what appears to be a trojan on my system. After launching IE, suddenly my wallpaper was changed along with my startup page, and various other things. After doing a full scan of my system, a couple of Trojans were found, along with some Spyware.

    The problem is though even after removing them, I can't change the Wallpaper on my Desktop because there is a tab missing on the Display Properties Window.

    Any idea how I can fix this?

    Also, the IE Titlebar text has been changed.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Can you please download and run HijackThis from

    Press the "scan" button and once it is done do *not* try to fix anything as most of the stuff is necessary, instead save the log and copy and paste it here so we can advise you on removals.
