Default Freaking a desktop changing help please.

So I havent been on any websites lately that I thought I would get malware from. But my desktop is changing to inappropriate pictures. I updated and ran avg and it removed two threats, but it is still changing the desktop. What can i do?

1. Don't go to those sites anymore.

2. Download and run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

Default Found my problem. Can someone help me remove it?

http://www.symantec.com/security_res...109-99&tabid=2

I have this. I have no idea where I got it. Should I just pull my ethernet cable and delete everything it made, run scans and then plug in again?

what anti-virus do you have?
im using NOD32
try the trial version and see if that works
but i would unplug it
that just simply puts a stop to all internet access
and then delete those files
and run everything
AVG, NOD32, Spybot, Ad-Aware, what ever
just run it all and see how that works
