    I'm using Windows 7 Home and got hit with Win 7 Security 2012

    I was able to remove it in safe mode with malewarebytes and SAS, but
    something is still screwed up and I can't figure out what it is.

    When I open FF with Google as my home page it looks like this Internet Explorer looks the same.
    For some reason Google Chrome seems to be normal. The browser itself
    and viewing web pages.

    Every web page that I go to with FF or IE doesn't view correctly. It
    would also appear that all Windows programs are also compromised. For
    example, Windows Photo Viewer when opened is in black and white...not
    the picture, but the program itself. Windows Paint that I used to
    create the screen shots with is outta whack as is Windows Live Mail,
    Windows Media Player, etc. Here is a screen shot of WMP

    If you refer to the first screen shot the taskbar is supposed to be
    black, and the little button in the lower r/h corner for accessing the
    desktop is not only blue, but it is also the wrong shape.

    When Windows 7 starts up and shuts down the background is supposed to
    stay blue. Now it is blue and then white while booting, and white and
    then blue while shutting down.

    I've run CCleaner, sfc /scannow and also tried doing a repair.

    Anyone know what is wrong with this damn thing?

    Try right clicking on desktop, choose personalise and select a default
    windows theme... If that doesnt work, create a new user account and log in,
    and see if that is fine.

    Thank you! Using a basic Windows theme worked. Any idea what in the
    hell happened?

    Glad I could be of help.

    I have had the same thing happen on vista as well. I spent about forty
    minutes trying different things. I made a new user account that fixed it,
    but that wasn't enough to fix my curiosity, and the individual had some
    particular setup which required a detailed resetup on a new user account.. I
    found when selecting the default theme it solved the problem. Much

    Something to do with the theme cache if I was to hazard a guess.

    Find a board that does HJT or OTL and go from there.
    The supposed ASAP listed boards - I've lost track of this and care not
    to comment -

    Bleeping Computer | MBAM Forums come to mind.

    You won't find definitive support here since you cannot post and HJT or
    OTL Logs on a non Binary NG.

    @ Silj

    I'm surprised that you didn't recommend a non-ASAP member too.

    You were a VSOP, weren't you?

    Perhaps you feel the site fails to meet requirements nowadays?

    Some other reason you'd like to mention?



    You may download the HJT facility from Trend Micro, run the facility and
    paste the log file here

    The result might prove interesting for you! Any particular entry may be
    copied and pasted into Google and may give you many leads! I see no
    reason why you cannot ask for further advice here (APS) - there are some
    clever folk who read here.

    Good luck!

    You lying discriminating piece of crap Troll. It is none your friggin business what
    people do and on top of that you accuse by innuendos good people
    Instead of making accusations and innuendos involve yourself with learning how to
    jump into the middle of the Ocean and holding your breath for 10 minutes underwater
    and all that time watching the sharks that are circling you.

    OK - *you* explain, dear Peter, why Siljaline has been removed from the
    list of VSOP's at Aumha - a place where you've resided since its
    inception. Has he upset the hierarchy there?

    It's a reasonable question to ask - IMO.

    Do you know Silj personally, Peter - he lives in your small town?

  14. It is NONE of you f'n business - that's why !

  15. You are right but I provide a very sparse meal to the BD troll.

    In July 2010, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), at Secretary
    Janet Napolitano's direction, launched a national "If You See Something,
    Say Something™" public awareness campaign –a simple and effective
    program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and violent
    crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity
    to the proper state and local law enforcement authorities. The campaign
    was originally used by New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority
    (MTA), which has licensed the use of the slogan to DHS for
    anti-terrorism and anti-crime efforts.

    What others do is none of your fucking business.the only crime going on

    Then there's:


    "Can you describe how it felt to have your breast(s) removed, SeaNympph?"



    "You mentioned that you are a cancer 'survivor'. After your treatment,
    were you left with both breasts, one breast or simply none at all?"

    Scummy enough for you, Beau?
