I have set up Google Desktop so that it selects pictures at random from my hard disc and displays them in a window on my desk top. Recently someone else used my computer and now I see pictues of skate boards. When I click on a picture it opens an internet site:

click here

How can I remove this? I use Windows Vista

If you right click and look at Properties it should tell you where it is, and then you can delete it.

Thanks but 'properties' does not appear. If I click on open it accesses the internet.

Just uninstall Photobucket from within Control Panel>Programs and Features.

Thanks - but it is not in the list

Go to Start>Search look in All files and folders, for superfly_49 or Photobucket.

Then highlight anything found, and press the Del key on your keyboard to get rid of it.

32 files appear I then delete them and they go to recycle bin which I also delete but the same files reappear in the original place!!!!

You may have been infected with a bug/malware of some sort. You should run all the anti-everything programs you may have at your disposal.

Some suggestions here, courtesy of skidzy click here

Or ask the person who used your pc.
