    Display Properties->Desktop is locked and I cannot change the desktop picture. This computer had SpyAway (and lot sof other badguys). It may still be compromised but for now the owner justs want to get rid of the (locked) desktop picture that says "Warning: Spyware has been detected on your computer. Your computer has... Click here to scan your PC for Spyare." How do I unlock the desktop picture?

    I also cannot access startup properties- "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Contact your system administrator."
    Thanks!
