Question about Computers & Internet
It seems you have a virus problem
if you have spysheriff do the following:
1.Open task manager by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del, and click on the "Processes" tab. Look for Spysheriff there and kill the process if you see it. If you see a process named "winstall" (winstall.exe) then delete this one also.
2.In the control panel goto "Add/ Remove Programs" and remove the "SpySheriff" program. If it says that it cannot uninstall, then you still have it running. It will uninstall once it's not running.
3.Your desktop background will not be restored by that uninstall. Go into the registry by starting RegEdit.exe from the start button.
4.Look for this key:
It will have about 6 values stored that disable certain things. Delete this whole branch ActiveDesktop - the system will work with default values afterwards.
Also delete this branch in your registry:
5.Look in your root directory for a file named winstall.exe.
This file is scheduled to execute each time you boot and it will re-install Spysheriff.
Delete that file.
