I am having an issue with my desktop wallpaper. Well first of all let me start by telling you what I did. I tried installing Combofix but in the middle of installing it I did't like the permissions I was needing to give it with my Avast free antivirus. After doing the I didn't notice anything until the next morning when I booted up my PC. I noticed my desktop wasn't displaying my wallpaper. So I tried setting a new picture from my PC as a wallpaper but discovered 2 problems. One, I noticed all my images were not displaying. Two, when I tried to set a new image as desktop wallpaper I received an error saying, "This image can't be set as wallpaper. An internal error has occurred."

Now with that being said I did notice that if I am browsing through my pictures without double clicking them to view them I can set them as Desktop Wallpaper, but I still cannot see the wallpaper. It is only when I double click the image and am viewing it using Windows Photo Viewer that I receive that error above.

Please can someone tell me what I did and how to fix it.
