Unhappy Desktop background

Ok, I have an annoying problem. All of the sudden when I exited out of Internet Explorer my background on my desktop turned just red. When I tried to change it through properties, I couldn't select any background; it just wouldn't let me. What do I do??

Sounds like it might be a virus, have you checked for viruses lately?

Have you tried rebooting? And if you had a few, you need to lay off the porn

Haha, just kidding, but you need to reboot into safe mode, scan for viruess. Delete them, and then see what happens. Also run spybot, as that is a good program.

Well, create a system restore point, and delete it. If it screws the computer, then just go to the point.

Anyways, good luck with that porn addiction problem, hahaha
