no normal desktop

This is not my problem so I may not have all the facts..
My brother running W98SE cannot open a normal desktop.
When he logs on, the PC checks the hard disc then continues but instead of the normal desktop he gets a background of fine dots with a small arrow in the centre
with a flag attached.
The PC opens ok in safe mode.

Any ideas please.

Does this sound like a virus?

Problem resolved with a registry restore.
I was surprised just how easy it was.
