Windows 7: Trouble With Desktop Background! Help!

Trouble With Desktop Background! Help!

I had to restore my computer after a virus. Now, when I'm on Firefox, I can't set the background, but I can do it on AOL, and when I do, the picture is completely blown up. I go to "personalize", but I can't change it to "center" or "tiles" etc. When I click them, or "save changes", nothing happens.

Anyone know how to fix this?

A repair install, or restore from before the problem

Um, should be SFC /Scannow (note the space between the "/" and scannow) and it probably wont help. Suspect a skin issue within FF>
