Nuclear Winter: Celebrating one whole year of mediocre posts.

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?



I met him fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the must rudimentary sense of life or death, good and evil, right or wrong. I met this six year old child, with this bland, pale, emotionless face. And the blackest eyes... the Devil's eyes. I spent eight years try to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up, for I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... Evil.

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!

Honestly I still hate the Mac OS. I MUST have the ability to tinker with everything, inside and out and it kills me to not be able to. No one ever said Windows was perfect and anyone expecting it to be is an idiot.
