I had a serious attack on my computer and sense that time the Desktop Background will not allow me to change it. The background that was there before the attack will appear during the startup of the computer but when the computer is almost finished and the icons began to appear the desktop background will turn blue. I access the display properties, desktop and the buttons are grayed out and the picture descriptions will not highlight or change. When I shut down the computer the previous desktop background will repair briefly as the shutdown begins. I have the latest Norton, Spysweeper and PC tools register cleaner. As I was removing a trojan that was present I turned off my system restore so there is no going back there. My virus software was out of date by 3 months when this happened and is now up to date.

What do you think?

Hi erickman.
See post #13 by Beg4Mercy here.
If you dont see the value, check the same location under HKEY_LOCAL_ MACHINE too.
Reboot your system.
