Alrighty, i have a number of problems and ill try and explain them as best i can.

first off, i use windows xp 64!

My first problem would be that the wallpaper on my computer seems like it doesnt want to load. this just happened suddenly after i didnt have a wallpaper for a while and when i decided to put one. it stayed black. when i go into properties > desktop > background and try and choose one, they dont come up in the preview box, i can only put plain colours and the "Windows XP" Background.

Second problem, my music icons look like this:
They should be looking like the winamp icon, winamp is set as the default player, ive tried changing the default player to itunes/windows media player but they still stay the same, i can double click on them and they will open the player, its just the icons that are broken.

Third problem is with my registery, a while ago a friend of mine told me to type something into run so that i cant double click on pictures to open them up, he said to do this because of a virus going around or something, now months later i regret doing this because it is really annoying not being able to open pictures on my computer!

Ive just ran a heap of virus scans etc and it seems clean to me.

thank you for your time and help!
