Desktop and/or users corrupted.

Posted: 02-20-2008, 05:21 PM
Not sure if we were hit by a virus or not, but now we cannot add a desktop
unless we "set as desktop" from a picture from the 'net and this is lost
after a reboot. When I try to change this function via the control panel,
I'm told that function has either been disabled and to contact the system
administrator...which is me.

Plus, recently my wife downloaded a .exe file for a update on another
program. I didn't know what it was so I check it's properties. Under the
security tag, the Users were listed at Anna(Gyroscope\Anna) and
Administrators (Gyroscope/Administrators) - Was I hit by a Gyroscope virus
that corrupted my user table and if so, how do I fix it?
