Recently my laptop became infected with Aurora / Nail.exe. During this infection it would download and install a wide variety of adware/spyware and various dialers and apps. Also during infection my background changed to a red box in the center stating that Windows had dedected spyware and I should clean my pc. I'm not sure exactly what it said, but i was something like that. I finally got rid of the infection using Kaspersky personal AV Demo. I have since run Adaware, Spybot S&D and Microsoft anti spyware to clean up any remains. Also I ran CleanUP! Problem is, now I cannot change my background. It is stuck solid blue, no red box. When I try to change it through display properties>desktop the buttons are all grayed out. If I select an image on line and set as background it still does nothing. Now when I first log in, before the the icons appear I can see my background. As soon as the icons appear my background changes to blue. I have tried searching various forums but have not found any tips that help. Can anyone help me get my backgrounds back? Also, now when windows first loads, after logging in I get a message... svhost file is not found. I dont know if that is related to my background problem.
