my win xp background, screensaver and system restore doesnt work,

By waynes_art ·
how do I first fix my sys restore for win xp op sys? it has no restore points, tried turning it off and back on. It does not work period. Even my registry cleaner detects it not working or says its off when its actually on. (system restore) I have even tried in safe mode, still does not work. Also my defrag, background, and screen saver does not work, when I go to properties or right click on desktop, I only get three tabs instead of the usual 5 tabs to change my different property do I fix these windows xp issues?

What are your user permissions set to? If the permissions are set too low, you can't do any of this stuff.

And, how long has it been since you checked your system for viruses? What are you running for anti-virus/anti-spyware and has it been kept up to date?

Both can cause these things to happen.
