I believe you still have malwares. Go to safe mode and run malwarebytes again. It's best to run malwarebytes on safe mode. Sometimes malwarebytes will not detect everything. Try running free online scan and removal like onecare, go to this link http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm

Vista not updating and unable to open control panel and display properties


1) Launch services.msc from a run command
2) Find the SLUNotify service & stop it
3) Find the Software Licensing service & stop it (it may say that ReadyBoost needs that service to run; stop it anyway)
4) Restart both services, starting with Software Licensing

That's all. No reboot needed.

Display Property For Windows XP


I just cleaned up a similar situation this weekend. Try this. Go into the control panel and create a new user id. Log off of your current user id and use the new one you created. See if the tabs are still there. If they are the virus trashed your desktop and you should create a new one.

Before you do that try scanning for viruses with the new desktop you just created. It might be that the virus exists on your old desktop and it won't go away because it is running. Checking for viruses using the new desktop can get rid of the problem.
