I also have another problem about not being able to change my desktop wallpaper when I right click on the desktop>properties>desktop>browse. It won't let me select another image file. The windows defaults are ok, and I can change it from the My Pictures folder as well.
Not sure if these problems are related at all
I do regular defrags, spyware checks, and virus checks and haven't found anything that could be causing the issue.
Thanks for your help in advance.
