Hi all,
i have been in contact via the hijack forum http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/271161/removal-security-tool-mbam-malfunction/ and been getting help from mOle but there is a small problem which we couldn't overcome and that is changeing desktop background!! we have tried several fixes but none appear to work.

I can change desktop background if i go into properties click on desktop tab and change it from there but if i try and right click on pic and select "set as desktop background" it doesn't work any help or advice on this issue would be greatly appreciated


Johnny

I have the opposite problem. I can't change the background from Properties\Desktop because I can't access what I want from there. Right clicking the file from Windows Explorer doesn't give an option to set the background. I have to open the picture I want to use in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, then click on the Icon at the bottom next to the ? button to get the option to set as background.

What happens when you do that? Nothing?

Why not just use the Desktop Properties method, too cumbersome?

Hi Johnnybhoy:

Would you be a sport and tell me what steps you've taken thus far so I won't be re-inventing the wheel with my suggestions? Thanks!

Many thanks for the reply mybuddyeric,
I was getting help for removing virus from other forum's within the site and this problem was the only thing we couldn't get sorted
We tried running the following

regsvr/i shimgvm.dll
regsvr/i shell32.dll
dwpfix and
fix policies

All of which failed to correct problem, Any advice would be grately appreciated
