    Desktop Properties

    I apparently picked up a virus that affected my Desktop Properties. Hopefully The Shield took care of the virus itself, but the Desktop Properties all got set to default settings, and I can't make any changes to my Themes, background picture or screen saver, etc.

    Hopefully this is a simple fix for the gurus here! Note: I think I'm a notch above novice user, but by no means am I approaching expert status.

    Hi Jeeper

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    Do you know the name of the virus perchance?

    Re: Desktop Properties

    No, I didn't write it down. I'm planning on messing with it later this evening, I'll see if it's still in the log or something. I don't have any time to mess with it right now.

    I do vaguely remember it was a Trojan _____, I think there was a number, maybe a Roman numeral? If that helps any.

    Thaks Jeeper, I have been doing a little research and there appear to be quite a few with different remedies, so as much information you can provide us will be great.

    The only thing I've been able to find is Trojan Downloader FFZ, or FZZ. I have that written down at home. What's the best website to visit and read about these, see if I can't stumble across something?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
