Did you run the virus checkers in safe mode? Also try running chkdsk /r from command prompt to check for HDD errors

my problem is that i was in devaintart.com i right clicked on an image and clicked save as desktop and then i decided i did not like the image so i went to my desktop properties and went back to my old desktop and now everytime i restart my pc my original desktop shows up for like 3 sec then goes back to the one i got off the internet...and yes i ran the checkers in safe mode as i just said
