I am having trouble getting my desktop image to display. When I click the desktop, then properties, it allows me to change my color, but I am unable to select an image. I havattempted to run regedit, but when I do it tells me the program is in use. Any ideas how to solve this problem?

This is generally the symptoms of not having the correct display driver installed or the computer is running in VGA mode.

Please read this tutorial on updating windows drivers, if you follow the instructions carefully, your problem should be solved.

I managed to update my driver and the problem still persists. Initially I could view my background normally, but a Trojan got in my system, causing unexplained shutdowns/restarts, etc. I hvav since located and quarantined the trojan, but I still have the aforementioned display issue. Any othger advice?

Try Kelly's Korner.

Restore All Display Tabs - #285 on the right.

As this is a registry edit you should backup the registry first.
