I, Too, Have been having problems with this. i have a blue background which HAD a warning on it, which i since got rid of.Flrman1 said:* Click here to download cleandesktop.exe. Save it to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the cleandesktop.exe file.
It will automatically extract to c:\desktopclean where it needs to be to run and will automatically run the cleandesktop.vbs script.
If it doesn't open then go to c:\desktopclean and double click on the cleandesktop.vbs. Do not run any other file from there please unless asked to do so.
If you have script blocking enabled you will get a warning about a malicious script wanting to run. Please allow this script to run. It is not malicious.
If you get a message when you first run it "Can not find script file "blah blah blah" then don't worry just doubleclick the cleandesktop.vbs script again you sometimes get that message when a script blocker blocks the script
It will then kill Explorer. You will lose your taskbar and desktop. It will repair the registry entries returning your normal desktop and context menu functions.
It will restart Explorer.
* If you have other user profiles on this system, each of the other Users on the System needs to be signed in to clean up their desktop and regain the right click.
Have each User sign in and run Other Profiles Regfix.vbs
Open C:\ (Go to Start>Run and type C: Press enter) and Open the c:\desktopclean folder. Double click on Other Profiles Regfix.vbs
Explorer will be ended and that user's active desktop registry entries will be repaired. Explorer will be restarted.
To restore the desktop to whatever picture you normally have right click on a blank part of desktop & select properties/desktop & select your prefered picture press apply & then ok to exit and then press F5
You will need to do this step for every user account
i have gotten rid of every trace of the problem, but cannot change my background. it is just a blank blue. i downloaded desktopclean, and extracted it, i went to open the script, and it came up in a notebook window . not really what it should be doing, right?
any help would be greatly appriciated, ive been working on this for almost 4 hours, and its slowly driving me crazy.
