I would like help with the following issue please. During a file search the hard drive sounded stressed, which is a very rare occurrence, and I shut the laptop down to protect it. I have restarted it a few times over the last couple of days, and desktop wallpaper is always missing. Instead screen shows icons on a black background. Also in Admin account. Hard drive behaving normally as far as I know.

Option to choose desktop background is currently not working. (see uploaded screenshot). Have tried selecting something, even though the picture of what I may be selecting is not shown, but this doesn't make any change.

I am hoping this is a symptom of just a minor problem.

Thanks, Jay
