I had the same thing happen to me about 6 months or so ago. It's the only one that I had seen that would change your background. A friend of mine came over and downloaded "webroot." It is a 30 free trial version. This was the only program that could find it. But even that was not able to remove it from my system. But it did tell me what it was. I don't remember what it is called now, but I was able then to do a google search on it to learn how to remove it.

What internet are you using? I had something very similiar happen soon after I reconnected Charter. I called them up and they offer a really awesome virus protection thing. Depending on what internet you use, you might be able to use their anti-virus stuff for free

I was going through the same thing. I downloaded Spyware doctor cleared it right up. Also look into a registry program. You can download it free at download.com.

Process File: rundll or rundll.exe
Process Name: Microsoft RunDLL

Description:
rundll.exe is a Windows System process belonging to the Windows 95, 98 and ME range of Microsoft Windows products. This is an important system process and should not be terminated. NOTE: rundll.exe can also be the LOXOSCAM and Backdoor.SchoolBus.B trojans depending on Operating System and file path; this is always a virus on Windows XP and 2000 operating systems however. Both are a backdoor Trojan that allow hackers to gain access to the computer. These program is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately. If found on your system make sure that you have downloaded the latest update for your antivirus application. Please consult the file path to distinguish between this and the system process.

You should go into start go to where is says search. Search for it in file/folders. Once you find it you can erase it if your running Window XP or Windows 2000.

Well I'm using the free version. I thought I had to buy it also but it's working. You don't get a couple of the extra features.

There's two button at the end try exploring. I'm telling you I had my credit card about to buy it. I can't remember how I got it. I think there two buttons you can push at the end of the scan. Try them both even if you think there trying to make you buy it. Where did you download it from?
