Vista Background not displaying RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • So my computer Bluescreened, a fairly regular but unpredicable event. Of course whenever I talk to Dell Tech support nothing goes wrong.

    Only this time after the usuall restart - bluescreen - startup repair cycle had been done a few times and I was able to login myh background no longer displays. When I go into the personalize / desktop background , I can happily change Solid Colors but the Windows Wallpapers only displays image placeholders and clicking on any of them has no effect on my desktop background.

    I have tried setting the theme to something different and changing the background, I have checked my user has full privelges to the desktop key in the registery (not sure how this could change but it was suggested in another thread) and no I have no more options.

    Any suggestions?
