Ok. So here's the scenario. I run Win 7 Ultimate and it's behaved impeccably up until a couple of days ago. From that time, when I boot up everythign goes smoothly and I get the normal login page. However, once logged in, my Desktop has developed an entirely black background. My previous desktop theme was gone!

When I try and change my desktop theme, I click on the relevant choice but nothing happens. I've tried everything I can think of: - ran the aero microsoft fixit troubleshhot wizard but it won't work. screenshot attached at end of message along with screenshots of my desktop and windows theme choice page. i have good security on my PC. Eset Smart Security, PrevX, MBAM, Zemana anti key-logger and run Firefox with appropriate security add-ons.

Please can someone help me with this, it's driving me nuts. Everything else is fine. Can surf web and all apps work perfectly normally.

Try running a scan with MBAM.

Thanks. I ran MBAM but it came up clean. Am beginning to think I'll never fix this!
Scan log below. Any other ideas?
