What Causes the Appearance of the 'U.Z.A. Operating System Wallpaper' Fake Wallpaper?

The 'U.Z.A. Operating System Wallpaper' fake wallpaper is a definitive sign of a U.Z.A. O/S Eliminator worm infection. This is a dangerous worm infection which can quickly spread from one computer to the other through any removable drives connected to the infected computer system. This happens because, apart from forcing the victim's computer to display the 'U.Z.A. Operating System Wallpaper' fake wallpaper, the U.Z.A. worm also creates a folder named 'My Personal Data' or 'My_Personal_Data' on any removable drives connected to the infected computer system. This folder actually contains the malicious worm behind the 'U.Z.A. Operating System Wallpaper' fake wallpaper as well as an autorun configuration which causes 'U.Z.A. Operating System Wallpaper' to be opened as soon as the removable drive is plugged into a computer system.

Removing the 'U.Z.A. Operating System Wallpaper' Fake Wallpaper from Your Computer

ESG security researchers recommend starting up your computer system in Safe Mode and then using a reliable anti-virus application to remove the U.Z.A. worm from your computer.
