Hello, I ground the rest of the Pest Trap and hypoteches.com crap to dust between multiple runs of Spybot, Ad-Adware, AVG, etc etc and editting the resgistery. I see no evidence that any of the malware is running anywhere with the one exception; the bogus message on the desktop that replaces the photo the guy wants for a background. It is a friend's computer and sadly to say there were reams of spyware, adware, viruses, and trojans that I removed. I addition to cleaning off a lot of unwanted software and making the startup more streamlined. Anyway, does anyone having a fix for the desktop background? Obviously, there is still at least one garbage file on the machine doing this, but... Any help would be great. As I said I have been watching the executing tasks carefully and I don't see anything running on the machine that looks questionable. Just the stupid wallpaper issue, which covers the photo that was set as wallpaper (you see the photo when shutting the machine down). Thanks.
