Hello, my name is James. I recently had a virus, which i believe is gone *prays*. It would not allow me to access my task manager, but I've already fixed that. The problem i'm having now is I can't change my background. It is completely blue and when i right click Properties on my background then go to Desktop i should be able to select a different background, but it is greyed out. I've tried looking into the registry, but can't seem to fix it. Any tips or advice would help.
Thanks in advance.
P.S I think the virus is gone because I'm not having anything too weird happen besides what has already gone wrong. I have Norton, and winupdate.exe is in my Quarentine. I'm hoping that was the virus that did this and Norton took care of it. That's what i'm thinking because if it removed it, it wouldnt fix the stuff that the virus already changed. I believe this is the last "trace" of the virus.
Also I've run full system scans twice now and it hasn't picked up anything besides tracking cookies, which it normally finds.
Some other things I just thought i'd add.
