Running windows xp
My wallpaper on my computer changed itself to a white background with a box in the middle that states "warning spyware detected on your computer". I ran spybot and had it removed and changed the background back to normal. After booting up my comp a few hours after, the same thing occured and i had to run spybot to fix it. I'm looking for a way to permanently fix this, not temporarily.

Thanks for reading. Any help is appreciated.

Also, my virus scanner (PC-cillin: its pretty old and not really up to date) picked up something called EXPL_SSLICE.GEN. Not sure if it's related but it popped up in the middle of nowhere.

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!


Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
