Recently, I visited a website that tried to load the AntiVirus 2009 on my laptop. While I did not install anything, Kaspersky failed to block it from getting to the computer. I ran Malwarebytes immediately and it removed several threats but I had to run it a few times to get them all. I also deleted some .exe files that were in either C: or C:/windows that didn't belong.
However, when going to display properties from the desktop (or CP), the first two tabs are disabled to the point I can't click any background image nor browse the folders. The browse button and slide bar are greyed out and so are the images in the Background field under the Desktop tab. I can click the "Customize Desktop" bar but not change or view other images.
I have gone to start - run - regedit and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop and added NoChangingWallPaper w/value of (0) zero.
I've run SDFix, Malwarebytes Full Scan, in normal and safe modes, and I can't figure out where else to go to change whatever settings were changed on me.
The computer is a Dell Laptop with XP Pro SP3.
Thank you for your help.
