I know how to set the image and have done so many times in the past. Since yesterday when I go and set the image, it shows in the small preview interface, but when you hit apply, nothing happens nor does pressing ok. Just goes back to the solid color.

After reading some posts, with advice to go to regedit, none of that changed anything. This was just one problem since my computer DATE was changed to November 2014. I am guessing some malware did the date change.


After figuring that out and changing the date back to this year, most of my add-on programs like Paint Shop, etc. had to be re-registered. I have most everything back to normal except the Desktop image thing, which I want to fix.


Any suggestioins? 


This computer is a Dell Latitude e5500 laptop, about 4 years old with service pack 3.

How about checking for possible replacement of the CMOS battery?


Does your BIOS reflect the correct date and time...and settings?
