This is my first post, and I sure hope I'm not starting it out by disrespecting the set of rules currently set.
A few months ago I got the annoying pop ups from pest trap telling me spyware has been detected and I needed to download their system to fix. I downloaded a free trial of McAfee and removed it, but ever since I have a blue desktop background, and when I try to use the "Display Properties" method of changing the desktop, I'm completely locked out from making a change. I know this issue has been discussed before, but here is why I'm posting my version of it:
1. From the "Display Properties" menu, clicking on "Customize Desktop", then on the "Web" tab shows that desktop items are NOT locked, and there are no selected web pages to delete.
2. I now have deleted all my anti spyware/anti-virus systems and installed microsoft onecare live as my all in one anti-virus, anti-spyware, so I'm afraid to download some recommended programs I've seen as onecare seems to flip out with these other programs.
3. I'm embarrassed to say I'm not understanding it when I read about hijack logs, and what they are and how to obtain them.
I'm just trying to regain control of my wallpaper, and if there is any advice on how I could do this under the listed circumstances, I'd definitely appreciate it. TIA,
