Hi, Quite recently i've noticed problems trying to apply any wallpaper to my pc. I tried through display properties as well as by right-clicking on an image and neither worked. Any suggestions?

Hi thefunnymanfrommars...

What is showing as the wallpaper now? Is it at least something you had selected in the past?

Right click on the desktop and choose "Properties". Click the "Desktop" tab, then the "Customize Desktop" button. Click the "Web" tab. What is listed in the "Web pages" field?

It shows nothing. the only thing that i can actually change is the colour of the background. And When i go into the web tab under the customize desktop option, the one option that shows is My Current Home Page which isn't even checked. I've run all sorts of virus scans and all that and tried to eliminate that possibility if that helps.

Yes sir I also have the same problem and can not find a way to fix this. I was going to post it, but you beat me to it. I also could use some help on that.
Thanks and have a happy day.

To add to what Wannabe1 says,

Right click the desktop->properties->desktop tab->customize desktop button->web tab->highlight the entry and click delete-> click OK.

Go back to desktop tab->choose your background.
