Suprised

This stoopid user had her computer crawling with viruses, opened the fotos.zip.exe file common in MSN messenger and an angelina jolie video.exe

ANyway... removd the viruses and all that but it also installed a desktop background about the computer being infected and that it needs an antivirus and anti spyware to be installed.

ALso the screensaver is set to some kind of blue screen of death, logon screen windows startup screens that fooled me for a bit thinking the computer had crashed.

I want to change the SS and desktop background but those options are disabled in the display settings.

Any way to re-activate them so I can change SS and background?

Thanks..
JC.
