    Unwanted Desktop Overlay (XP Home)

    I'm trying to help an elderly gentlemen who states that just before his desktop comes up the screen fills with a porno image advertising Rosebut Digital DVD, and it stays there overlaying his desktop. He has no idea how he got it or how to get rid of it.

    Any suggestions are most welcome.

    Try using Sysinternals Freeware - Autoruns to check what is starting at boot up. Also, if you have not run malware scans do so.
