I am unable to change my desktop background. Under the desktop tab in the display menu, the scroll bar is locked and I am unable to click on one as it will do nothing. I have tried unchecking the boxes in customize desktop and I have tried fixing the problem with registry edit with no luck. Please help.

I experimented with one of them, appear in tiles, they do and I cannot change it into strech or center. And I have no knowledge of making a custom background.
