Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I have Toshiba laptop. I have installed Windows XP with service pack three. I went to one of the software website and my laptop got infected with Trojan Horse. I cleaned it and the laptop stated working fine but I lost my desktop wallpaper. In the display control panel I am only getting three tabs now instead of five. ie Themes, Appearance and Setting. I am not getting Screensaver and Desktop tab.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Do one of the following:
If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.
If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.
On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.
Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.
If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.
