    elo...long time since ive been on.

    this has hapned to me before,but for the life of me i cant remember how i fixed it...

    windows antispyware said it spotted 'lookingfor dialer'

    i have had this before,and the most obvious symptome was my desctop background being replaced with a black screen with nonsence written on it and a link.

    windows spyware managed to remove it...kinda!!

    the blank screen is gone,but now remains an ever changing screen from my original background,and a white screen.... the white screens properties say: file://C:\WINDOWS\Web\desktop.html

    any help would be much apreciated! :)
