The only other thing I can think of to check would be the
following:

Go to Start -> Run and enter regedit.exe in the Open box.
Navigate to this location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

If there's an entry in the right hand pane for Wallpaper, right
click on it and select delete.

Good luck

You're welcome. Glad to hear that you got that problem fixed.

As you're probably aware, the kind of problem you experienced
is usually the result of some sort of pest that got on your
computer. Make sure you've run a scan with an updated antivirus
as well as an antispyware application, such as AdAware and
Spybot S & D. If you've already cleaned up your PC, great.
Hopefully you won't run into that sort of junk any time soon.
