Desktop Background issue

The other day i had a webpage that was like a spyware on my desktop...i managed to get rid off it but now i got this white background that flashes now and then...its as if its trying to get that webpage up but cant find it. Ive tried changing my desktop to anuva pic but it wnt work.

When i log in the log in screen background is the one i choose. But once im logged in the main one changes after and its irritating

I would advise you to:

1) Update your virus scanner and do a full system scan
2) Update/install anti-spyware programs, such as Ad-Aware & Spybot & do a full scan to remove any nasties

Forget Ad-Aware and Spybot for now, download, install then update Ewido and run a FULL system scan.

Have you;

1. Tried an online anti-malware scan? (i.e the online Ewido malware scanner, and Symantec's online virus scanner?)

2. Used Rootkit Revealer to verify it's not a rootkit thats on your machine?

Try Control Panel-Display-Desktop tab, then Customise Desktop - Web tab. It should tell you if there is any web content. Delete anything that appears there.
