My computer is suddenly displaying an "antivirus" HTML document over the top of my desktop (it's blocking the wallpaper I made, but allowing the icons to show through).

Properties reveals that this HTML thing is:
C:\WINDOWS\desktop.html

If I run AdAware, it fixes the problem for a moment, but a few seconds later this thing pops up again.

Any ideas?

It appears to be a somewhat common problem from this Google search. I read through the first few links, and they'll take you through fixing it (hopefully).

Yeah, that took care of it. I feel kinda dumb now... that was a little too easy.

Thanks a bundle for the help, FriedEgg!
