Have you tried restarting, sometimes if you make certain changes it won't let you change other details until you restart.

Works on mine.

If your goal is to modify the Computer Description, have you attempted a direct registry edit or merge? If such an attempt fails, the cause of your "problem" is readily identified.

If your goal is to identify the cause of the "problem", please advise.

I cant write there, it it doesn't allow me, and not showing Text Select mouse only shows me Normal Select mouse.

Any help would be appreciated!

In this screen shot it says description and workgroup Not Available, but it states in options window you have open that it's WORKGROUP, out of interest are you able to change the name of the workgroup, just thinking that somehow it's connected.

Well it looks like you have an activated RTM build.

Wouldn't be surprised if that may have caused it.
