In the last couple of days my desktop/wallpaper is only showing a black screen. When I look @ the control panel to change the wallpaper it shows that the picture I was using is still active. I change it to a Vista image and click apply, nothing. I still have the black screen behind my icons. Also, now when I go into a folder the images in the folder do not display correctly and the folders in the folder(zips, etc.) will not show @ all. The names for the folders appear. I click on the veiw tab and it goes to a smaller view and all my icons appear. Please help.

I have Vista Home Premium. It is a laptop.

Hi drgellar, Welcome to Bleeping Computer :huh:

Try this. Go to the Control Panel / Ease of Access Center and click on Make the Computer Easier to See.
Make sure Remove background Images is not selected.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
