Desktop Background does not display RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I don't understand why my computer is doing this all of the sudden but my background will not display. It goes back to the color, even when I change it or I click on a picture to add it as my background. As well, the icons on some pictures will not load until I change the size. When I go and change the background, it gives me a blurry picture icon and its location is 'roaming." Another thing: maybe I was impatient but I tried to log into my guest account just to see if the background was working. It was just completely black: no icons, no background, no task bar. I can see pictures just fine and I can watch movies and stuff. Can someone help me on this issue? Any suggestions?

    I also have another question: my computer is running over 100 processes... is there reliable software to detect processes I don't need and some spyware that I can use that will detect things that Malwarebytes can't?

  • Hi,

    To avoid confusion, let us focus on the origianl issue: no backgroud or blurry picture.

    Given this situation, I suspect your vedio card driver might encounter issues. Please uninstall\reinstall it or download the latest version from vedio card manufacture's downloading center to check the result.
