    Thanks man. You just helped me not throw my girlfriend's laptop through a
    wall!

    She downloaded Malware alarm 2.1, which is when the problem started. I went
    through a long tedious process of cleaning the program out. 100% did it.

    Still couldn't see wallpaper. Acer support and Microsoft support couldn't
    fix it...but you did! Sweet!! Thanks again!
