    My daughter has a Dell XPS M1210 laptop running Windows XP Media Center Edition. She got fooled by PSGuard and thought she was downloading antispyware software after a warning came on her screen. She ended up with the TrojanDownloder.xs and the SmitFraud problem. With a lot of assistance from past posts I was able to I think delete most of the problems. But I still can't change her theme or desktop background. I got rid of the "you have spyware and need to download spyware removal software" backgroun by now the screen is blue or a solid color and nothing else.

    Here is the HiJackThis file.

    Cannot change wallpaper

    Open up the Registry editor by going to Start => Run and typing in "regedit" {without the quotes}

    Navigate to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Software
    Microsoft
    Windows
    CurrentVersion
    Policies
    System

    Look for a String in the right-hand pane called Wallpaper. If it's there, probably pointing to the path to an image file, note down this path so you can delete the file later. Now right-click on Wallpaper and Delete it.

    -----------------------------------------------------
    Another possiblty:

    Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select 'Properties'.
    Click the 'Desktop' tab and click the 'Customize Desktop' tab.
    Click the 'Web' tab and delete everything except "My current Home page"
    Uncheck (clear) 'My current Home page'.
    Click OK and retry a Desktop background.

    ==============================

    Cannot apply Windows XP themes. Only Classic View available.

    Go to Start => Run and type in services.msc
    Maximize the Services window that opens and scroll down to Themes
    Double-click on it.
    Set the Startup type to Automatic and click the Start button.
    Exit Services


    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Windows XP style not available

    Right-click My Computer and click on Properties.
    Click on the Advanced tab and in the Performance section click the Settings button.
    Under the Visual Effects tab check the box 'Use visual styles on windows and buttons'.

    Thanks Claymore, nothing changed.

    Look for a String in the right-hand pane called Wallpaper. If it's there, probably pointing to the path to an image file, note down this path so you can delete the file later. Now right-click on Wallpaper and Delete it.


    There was noting in the registry other then a default
    -----------------------------------------------------
    Another possiblty:

    Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select 'Properties'.
    Click the 'Desktop' tab and click the 'Customize Desktop' tab.

    Uncheck (clear) 'My current Home page'.
    Click OK and retry a Desktop background.

    ==============================


    There was nothing in the webpage box. I tried to make a picture she had the desktop background but that did not work.

    Cannot apply Windows XP themes. Only Classic View available.

    Go to Start => Run and type in services.msc
    Maximize the Services window that opens and scroll down to Themes
    Double-click on it.
    Set the Startup type to Automatic and click the Start button.
    Exit Services


    It was already in automatic and started. I stopped it and then restarted it in a attempt to maybe get in working. No such luck.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Windows XP style not available

    Right-click My Computer and click on Properties.
    Click on the Advanced tab and in the Performance section click the Settings button.
    Under the Visual Effects tab check the box 'Use visual styles on windows and buttons'.


    SHe already had it set "Let windows choose best settings" and that box was checked. I tried changing it and then going back to it and it sitll did not work.

    In the Themes part it will aloow you to choos a theme but only the background color changes, no theme, but the icons change.

    In the desktop part the background pictures you can choose can't be chosen, like Aquarium, and the Browse button Position are grayed out.

    Thanks for the ideas. Any others??
