    Hey all - been assaulted with spyware recently... managed to delete it, but can't get Display Properties to show everything. I've read hundreds of threads talking about registry modification and lots of people seem to have been able to fix the problem easily. BUT! Both these keys are set to 1, disabling the tab's of course, and whenever I change them to 0, they just revert straight back to 1 as soon as I navigate away and back again in regedit.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\NoDispAppearancePage or \NoDispBackgroundPage

    Both set to 1 and wont change. I've deleted them, and they reappear as soon as I refesh. Changed them to 00000000, and they pop back to 00000001 as soon as I refresh.

    This has got me puzzled as an african monkey in fiji. I've attached a HJT log, as well as a screenshot (cropped) of the message displaying on my desktop. Screen keeps flashing too - like it's constantly refreshing or something.

    Any help MUCH appreciated!

    Oh yeah - comp specs...

    Athlon XP 2200+
    Gigabyte GL-7N400 Pro2
    1024MB DDR400 (2x 512MB sticks in Dual Channel)

    - Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT
