Windows 7: Desktop Image Oversaturated No Icons

18 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32
Desktop Image Oversaturated No Icons

*fixed* killed explorer.exe in taskbar and restart it. Desktop appears normal again.

Every now and then my desktop gets screwed up by showing the Background image with oversaturated colors and also shows no icons. I also cant right click on the desktop. In the past I've fixed it by restarting or messing with a few of nvidia's settings and it would come back to normal. As of right now I can't get it to work. I have a Geforce 8600gts and a LG M237WD monitor. Everywhere else including the start menu and other programs work fine. i've uploaded a picture of a screen cap to give you an idea. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.

You had 2 background images at once. Do you use the slideshow feature? If it comes back, let us know, somehow 2 images got set at once. A Guy
