Help please.

Some bug has taken over my desktop!


OS is XP Pro, running IE6 and symantic firewall and virus protection, updated.

In a nutshell some spyware removal ad plastered itself on or over my desktop.
Properties show the correct desktop but this "ad" is what is visable!!!!

I was able to delete the file (file://C:\WINDOWS\desktop.html) and lose the ad but my desktop is now just white with properties still showing the correct desktop.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

thx
