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!

FYI - I "tried" Googling this and I'm hoping someone can help me find the "obvious" thing that I'm missing. I have RoadRunner, my brother gave me his laptop to look at.
