Windows 7: Windows 7 black background problem

Windows 7 black background problem

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate Version 6.1 Build 7600, I was Using camtasia studio to edit a video when I got the BSOD, my first bsod since I got my computer in '07. Anyways after the computer rebooted and I logged on, the background wallpaper was solid black.
I tried to change the theme in the Personalize menu, but all the themes come up as solid black! At first I thought my display drivers got corrupted, but after uninstalling and re-installing them 4 times I found out this was not the problem.

Any other fixes you guys know of? Picture Attached

No guarantees.....

Right click at open space of desktop > Personalize > at the bottom, Desktop background > at Picture location, what does it say in the box ? Solid Color ?
If so, click the pointer and select another option > click Save Change

Hi jigz1122 ! What is the theme you are using ? Do you have any program like Black Glass Enhanced ?

Can you Show us your notification area items and msconfig startup tab ?

EDIT : In the mean time you try SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker .

Does this happen on a different Theme?

Also does this happen after a clean boot

See Perform a clean startup to determine whether background programs are interfering with your game or program

You try what oboedad55 suggested ..... download Malwarebytes and scan your computer with it .

If still it is there , try a System Restore to an earlier date .
