  1. The desktop background and start bar suddenly changed.


    I have recently switched from macOS to Windows 10. Now, I know that I'm more likely to catch a trojan or something than I should with macOS. By being aware of that, today my desktop background changed to a picture of a cliff climber, and the taskbar and start bar turned from white to black. Is this something that can happen? I hope I didn't catch a RAT.
