start>control panel>appearance and themes>change desktop background.

At desktop tab I can't select any of the background choices. Also, I can change color and the preview shows change but when applied, only the immediate around desktop icons change - rest remains the same. Any help???

Any other problems or popups?

Check your PC for spyware. Run a full scan with a reputable anti spyware application like Microsoft Windows Defender or Spybot Search & Destroy.

I've run WIndows Defender and Spybot to no avail. Only other problem is on restart. After Windows logs off the computer freezes up. The ON/OFF switch won't even work. However, if I shut down the computer (vs. restart) all is OK.
