    Hey guys,

    This is weird. In display properties, I cannot change the wallpaper. The entire selection box listing the wallpapers is ghosted. This machine previously had an infection that I cleaned off.


    I have tried the following:
    -Checking gpedit.msc to make sure it's not disabled in the LCP
    -Making sure all the disabler policies in Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies are set to 0
    -Running Registry Mechanic
    -Disabling active desktop


    I'm stumped!!

    That didn't help.

    It turned out to be a couple of strange keys in HKEY_USERS\##\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. Deleting them removed the policies and unlocked the wallpaper selection box.

    Perplexing, because they weren't declared in the policy editor.

    Thanks anyway gents!
