When the box stopped running, my desktop disappear and I got a warning across the desktop that my system was infected with a virus. I tried to right-click on my desktop and the display properties function is disabled. All ti get is a box that says:

Now, my desktop is a blank WHITE screen and I don't have the ability to change or set my desltop.

Can someone help me to get my desktop back??
