Windows 7: Windows 7 - Background Stuck

Windows 7 - Background Stuck

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I made an account here because I need help, obvious!

Well, I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate x32, and everythings works perfectamente, but I realised that I cannot load a wallpaper on desktop, I can only use solid colors, from personalize.

I checked some topics but still cannot resolve this, I uncheked the option from Control Panel, deleted dwm, still in trouble. I installed also video card, audio card, database card, and others.

Any solution guys?

Hello Saxet, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, double check in the Ease if Access Center to see if you may have checked the Remove background images (where available) box by mistake. Doing so will only allow you to have solid colors as a background.

Hope this helps,

If what WHS posted did not help as well, then you might do a system restore using a restore point dated when you were able to change the background.

Here's the story: When I try and change the background to an image it just stays as the solid color, I use to be able to change the background but I accidently set it as a solid color and I can't change it. I've tried Ease of access method and I've tried to delete a corrupt...
