 Computer Advice

Hey, I've been having problems with having a background on my computer.

I went to the 'Display properties' and then desktop but all the options are in 'gray' meaning I can't click on them to change them.

I had this problem with Windows ME but now I uploaded Windows XP professional and still am having this problem. Can someone help me with some tech. support? Microsoft is asking for 60$ to give an answer and saints, I don't have that.

Thanks.

 Re: Computer Advice

I found 2 links to try
http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/533844-unable-access-desktop-tab-display.html

and here:

http://www.thetechguide.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t17414.html

They look rather lengthy. Both links seem to say the same thing. Its either a virus or spyware.
Hope this helps!

GOD Bless
John

 Re: Computer Advice



I think you are asking about the desktop where all your icons are displayed, if so

press start

then click control panel

then double click the display icon

then click the desktop tab and make your choices.

You can also set your screne saver from this page

When you are done press Ok

I hope this helps

 Re: Computer Advice

Here is what I would do...

Go to Start->Run and type gpedit.msc and press Enter. Then follow the menus to go to User Configuration-> Administrative Templates-> Control Panel -> Display.

Double click "Prevent changing wallpaper" and select either Not Configured or Disabled. That is where you can "gray out" or "ungray" that setting.

Does that make sense?

 Re:

I think I might have a virus and spyware.

Because when I had Windows XP, I had a 'stop sign' on the bottom right of my computer and it said, "Your computer is infected." And I've never had that before. The computer began going 'hey-wire'.

So then I loaded up XP because I thought it would wipe out everything and start from new. (Because last time I put XP over my ME, it deleted everything and started over from new)

But I still have that problem.

Parsley, I clicked on 'Disable' then tried 'enable' and yet it's still 'gray'.

I hope this helps describe the problems.

Thanks so far for the help, if your willing please continue. 8-)

edit: Those links didn't help. Sorry. I got more confused through the links because other things popped up. (Like a link to many downloads instead of one...)

 Re:

Ahh, I'm also getting this pop up. I have a few pop up blockers but this is still getting by.

It's telling me I have '55 errors' and need to fix my computer or it would shut down and have serious errors.

I know it's probly an advertisment, but it KEEPS POPPING up every 3 minutes.

 Re:

Here is a good resource. http://www.tek-tips.com.

If that doesnt help, in my opinion,I would format the drive (save everything you can first!!) and then reinstall the operating system. Otherwise,everything else is just a bandaid!

GOD Bless

 Re: the best Computer Advice ever

I realize you are asking for a fix to a small problem, but in my experience as a long time frustrated PC owner, there is only one solution I have ever found for viruses, spyware, and other PC headaches.

[url=http://www.apple.com/getamac/]The Solution[/url]

I just picked up a used one for a less then a new PC...and it will be running virus free for years after the new PC's are in the trash can.
