Desktop is black, No wallpaper, Cannot right click on desktop.

July 3, 2011

When you try to click on desktop nothing happens. The wallpaper may be changed and all of the icons you had put on there are gone. This is usually caused by windows recovery virus, or from the xp, vista, or 7 internet security virus.

1. Launch “regedit” and locate “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.” Delete the keys that dont have old added, and then rename keys with old to *name without old.
WallpaperOld > Wallpaper
WallpaperStyleOld > WallpaperStyle
TileWallpaper > TileWallpaper

2. Locate “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop” and delete NoChangingWallPaper.

3. Locate “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer” and delete the value NoDesktop.

4. Restart PC
