I think that a friend of mine had his desktop hijacked by a porn site.
The normal wallpaper is gone and now in its place is an active desktop
wallpaper with a spyware ad that cannot be changed via "Display
Properties". Most of his desktop icons are gone, which only a couple
"Megaporn" ones remaining, which when clicked go to a porn web site.
Right-clicking is disabled as well. How can this be fixed? Please
help!

Download, install, update and run all of the following.

If none of the above fixes the issue then download Hijack this, run it, save
a copy of the log file and cut and paste it back here to the group so that I
can analyze it.
