    Hi, thanks for the help i received from your experience on the forum.
    I have read about your help in a desktop malfunction situation were a spyware program installed an executable file, changing the desktop walpaper permanently with an html file.

    Well, my situation was similar but i have already fixed badfiles using SPYWARE and antivirus sw. The bad html file was inside the system32 dir (desktop.html)
    The only problem still present on my PC is the reduction of the control of the desktop options: rightclicking on the desktop it opens the dialog windows but it shows only two tabs, Screensaver and res settings; the other tabs are hidden so i can't restore the walpaper i need.
    I guess is a registry bad setting, made by the bad exe file.
    Could you help me to show again the desktop tab and theme tab in the screen properties window?
    Hope to be clear enough, i'm italian and my english is not perfect.
    Thanks a lot anyway.
