Hi

Windows XP pro

I have an unwated advert on my desktop. I can't get rid
of it. It has been installed when I tried to intall SP2.
When I right click somewhere on the desktop to get to the
Properties of my screen saver, it get the properties of
that picture on my desktop.

I ran all AV software.

How can I get rid of it please ?

Thanks
