Windows 7: My Slideshow for Desktop and Backgrounds isn't working

My Slideshow for Desktop and Backgrounds isn't working

All was fine until a few days ago. After cleaning off some malware that had latched on, I found myself with a black desktop screen. I've used a few methods recommended online, and now when I go to C:\Users\ES_Desperado\Pictures for example, I can see my pictures. However, when I go to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Desktop Background and navigate to the folder with my pictures, I find blank squares where my pictures should be. I select all of them, yet my computer refuses to display anything other than a solid-color background. Please help, I know this is not a serious issue, as people are dealing with bluescreens on here, but it is highly annoying and I wish to fix it.

Desktop backgrounds
This is when I go to customize my background. Looking at the choices from the drop-down box, I have 2 that are listed as: Windows Desktop Backgrounds. Can anyone tell me why this is? Also, is it possible (probably though the registry) to remove 1 of them?
