Folders/Windows/Picture icons blank; wallpaper solid color
So,

I'm not sure what has happened, but I somehow got the goingonearth.com virus/trojan thingy....I don't even know if this has anything to do with my problem. I do know that since discovering and trying to remove said virus/trojan I have experienced some issues:
1. My folder & picture icons (thumbnails) have gone literally blank when in Large mode. There is NO folder icon, just white (picture). The folder/picture text is still there. The ACTUAL folder icon shows when in small icon mode, but if I switch to large icons, it stretches the smaller one and makes it VERY pixelated (sp?) (picture). Anyway, I have screen shots inserted.

2. When deleting a file I've noticed the picture icon associated with it is black (picture).

3. I cannot change my desktop picture using the pictures, I can however change the solid color from black to whatever color I want OR I can use a web picture and set it as my desktop. The icons under wallpaper pictures is blank as well (picture).

I can assure you that I have unchecked the "Always show icons, never thumbnails" option in the Folder Options under control panel (picture).

ANY help would be much appreciated, this is driving me crazy.

Thank you,
Cuzimjustmeh
