on the Desktop, and the Taskbar? If so, does everything else work as expected?
Have you changed Windows Themes lately? In Display Properties there is a tab for Themes I believe. What happens if you try the default theme?
Has this ever worked, and if so, what has changed on this system since it last worked?
When I start up my computer, the desktop background is black. I did some antivirus searches, McAfee, Malwarebytes and nothing came up. Then I went into the control panel. When I open 'choose a desktop background', the screen below the Windows wallpaper is blank. If I run my mouse over where the images should be, a light blue square is shown along with the name of the image, like 'HP Radiance' along with its properties. When I click on a light blue box then click okay, there is still no picture on the wallpaper. The only thing I'm able to do with the wallpaper is to choose a solid color. Any suggestions?
