But I have one issue that we have not been able to solve. It was suggested that I post here and see if any of the XP experts can help. The malware folks say my HJT logs are clean and my pc shows no other evidence of malware infections, all my AV and Spyware scans come up clean.
My problem is that I cannot change the desktop background color or the desktop theme.
I can change the title bar colors, and such, but my desktop is stuck on blue.
Unlike some other of the desktop hijacks I have read about, the choices listed in the properties window are not "grayed out" as some have reported.
On the Theme tab, the active theme listed is "Windows XP (modified)"
When I pick a different theme, the correct background is shown correctly in the preview window, but when I press apply, the entire dialog box closes and the desktop does not change.
On the Desktop tab, all the choices are shown, but if I click on any of them, the entire dialog box closes and nothing happens, the desktop remains blue.
On the appearence tab I can change the color of the window title bars, but still cannot change the desktop background.
I have checked all the polices using GPedit and the known registry areas for desktop locks or setting, none are currently configured.
What do you suggest??
