Personlization Problems with wallpaper

Hey, I have had some problems about my desktop background ever since i got rid of a nasty virus.
My background are only colours, and I can change it to alle the colours that it standard to the computer(black, white, yellow...) but when I try to set a picture as my background it wont change.
is there something I can do, that does not involve reinstalling it all.

Hello Madsih, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to make sure that you have the Remove background images (where available) box unchecked in the Ease of Access Center Make the computer easier to see section.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

As to your problem, you have to get out of Solid Color scheme AND select Wallpaper.
See my screenshot :

Personlization Problems with wallpaper-image-8.png

See if this step by step will help solving your problem :

1. Go to Personalization window.
2. Click Desktop Background.
3. You are looking at Solid Color scheme.
4. Click the pointer I showed you in above screenshot.
5. You will see a drop down box with options - select Wallpaper.
6. Now click the Browse button to navigate to your picture folder.
7. ( you know what to do for the rest.)
