Right-click on the desktop and choose PROPERTIES. In the new window that appears (labeled DISPLAY PROPERTIES) click on the DESKTOP tab and then click on the CUSTOMIZE DESKTOP button. In the new window that appears (labled DESKTOP ITEMS) click on the WEB tab. If there is anything listed in the WEB PAGES text box that has a checkmark in the checkbox associated with it, uncheck the box. If there is anything listed there other then MY HOME PAGE, highlight it and click the DELETE button. Click the OK button. You should now be back to the DESKTOP tab in DISPLAY PROPERTIES. Choose one of the items listed in the BACKGROUND list box and click APPLY and then OK. Did the desktop wallpaper change?

Please right click this LINK, choose SAVE LINK AS or SAVE TARGET AS, and save it somewhere on your computer where you will remember where it is located. Then find the file on your computer and double-click it to run it. Click YES to the warning: Are you sure you want to add the information in FILE LOCATION HERE\wallpaperenable.reg to the registry? Then reboot your computer and once it's rebooted, try to change the wallpaper.
I tried to save target as but saved as a txt file ??? can you help me Thanks!!

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other issues that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.

If the file name came out looking like wallpaperenable.reg.txt, right click on it, choose "Rename", and remove the .txt from the end. Then click a clear area to set the change and you should be left with a reg file named wallpaperenable.reg...which is what it needs to be to merge with the registry.
Might as well update the instructions a little as the newer browsers will add an additional .txt file extension.
