Properties Windows Gone - No Screensaver

By dhigson ·
XPAntivirus 2008 attacked my PC and took my screensaver and Properties Window. I have removed the XPantivirus but I still don't have the Properties Window when I right-click.
Can anyone help me.

Clearly you haven't removed all the damage so what did you use to remove the virus?

I used Revo uninstaller, which took the xpantivirus 2008 windows off the
screen but I still have no properties window when I right-click on my mouse on my desktop, so therefore I have no screensaver.

Turn off System Restore
<br><br>
Download SDFix and save it to your desktop.(either one below)
<br><br>
http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/RemovalTools/SDFix.zip
<br><br>
http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/RemovalTools/SDFix.exe
<br><br>
Double click SDFix and it will extract the files to %systemdrive% (Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)
<br><br>
Restart your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
<br><br>
Tap the F8 key continually and select Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
<br><br>
Choose your usual account.
<br><br>
Use Explorer to navigate to the sdfix folder and double click "RunThis.bat" to start the script.
<br><br>
Type "Y" to begin the script.
<br><br>
It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
<br><br>
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
<br><br>
Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
<br><br>
When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display "Finished", then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
