This is a friends computer she has asked me to work on so I don't know how or when it happened. When you try to change the desktop (wallpaper) the different ones are still listed but you can not highlight them to switch from one to another. Any help would be appreciated.

blh102444, Right click your Desktop, choose Properties, under the Desktop tab click the Customize Desktop button, under the Web tab make sure that everything is unchecked, click Apply/OK. Now see if you can change the wallpaper.

If that doesn't correct the problem go to the link below and under the letter "W" - "Wallpaper - Desktop - Disable Changing" click on "Allow Wallpaper/Background Changes" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.
