I'm having problems on one of our machines, running windows xp, where the wallpaper does not want to show up.
The background is all blue and when I right click and go to properties, under Theme, I see 'modified theme'. No matter how many times I change it to Windows XP Theme, the background stays blue, and when I go back into properties it is back to Modified Theme.
I also tried going into the desktop tab and selecting any other background but none of them work. I can see the thumbnails and see the way it's supposed to look but the background doesn't change.
I also notice that the windows XP backgrounds like: moon, fish, friend, blue, are not even in the list anymore.
What I've tried:
I tried this solution here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921049/en-us
- didn't work
I tried also going into the group policy editor and followed instructions to disable/enable stuff there but none of that made a change either.
I cannot use System Restore because I've just done way too much work and changes that would be lost.
I just need to get the background image to show up!
