Windows 7: No Pictures as Desktop background

No Pictures as Desktop background

Good morning to everybody;
My OS is W7 pro.
It's a couple of days that it is impossible to use any picture as desktop background image on the screen.
The only thing I have done before was the uninstalation of the "Offerbox" SW.
When I execute the procedure to personalize the screen and I select the desktop background, after having selected the file with the pictures I get the squares of the pictures without any image ( that is : the squares are empty).
If I look to the pictures with any picture viewer, the pictures are perfectly displyed.
Thanks in advanve for any help

Did you set the display to TILE by any chance?

If so, try to set it to either CENTER. FILL FIT or STRETCH

Hello Frasal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this has just started, you might consider doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this started to hopefully fix it for you afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

To Brink:
I tryed to do this; but it does not work because it says it cannot complete cause a non answering program program.
What do you think if I try to reinstall the OS using the update function of the original W7 dvd? ( If I have correctly understoot this will allow for the saving of all my parametrizations of the System)
Thanks and regards

To Sledge DG.
I checked what you are suggesting but nothing changes. As said in my first post, when I ask for the pictures I get an image like that in your post where, for every picture, there is a blank square. ( sorry I dont know how to put my picture in the post).
In addition I discovered that in any case the system does not save my selections

Frasal,

Have you tried doing the system restore at boot instead of from within Windows 7 to see if it may work from there?
