Changing the wallpaper

I am having trouble setting a wallpaper on my computer. When I go to the control panel to change the display, it will only let me change the color of the background - the other options are light grey and I cannot click on them. However, when I restart or turn on my computer, the wallpaper does flash for a second, but once it brings up the icon screen, it is gone. I tried to re-install the display drivers from the Windows website. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

This usually happens is due to spywares disabling the wallpaper option from the computer. Try running this registry fix.

Hi, I can help you with this problem. I ran into the same one a while back. You need the most current and correct drivers for your video card. Can you tell me what kind of video card you have? Brand and model number.

My le pan II background color changed to a mixed red - is the display going out?


Sounds like an app changed your wallpaper settings. Try this: go to settings then click display, you will see what wallpaper you have on th list right. Touch wallpaper and choose whatever you want then click set. This may bring everything into focus with the background you need for the correct page. It seems sometimes the LePan changes color but it is actually the wallpaper somehow taking over. Let me know if changing wallpapers works to "right" the situation. I hope this helps

Cannot get rid of an unwanted program .


here's manual antivirus xp 2008 removal
http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-antivirus-xp.html

If you are having problems with your desktop or getting the nasty message when you boot up follow the instructions below, but use the above link to remove the virus. YES THIS IS A VIRUS AND NOT A VIRUS REMOVAL TOOL!

First you need to stop the program from loading on startup. This is what you do to stop it:

Start, run

Type msconfig

Go to Startup tab
(if you've totally removed the antivirus program, you will not find these files and you can skip to the gpedit.msc step)

Uncheck lphc35dj0e1an
Uncheck rhc75dj0e1an

Click apply, then ok
Restart computer


Then you need to delete the main files this program uses. Delete the following file:

C:\windows\system32\lphc35dj0e1an.exe

Delete the following folder and all contents:

C:\program files\rhc75dj0e1an

This should remove the program from your system but you probably still have a warning message displayed as your wallpaper in Windows and the virus removed the ability to change the wallpaper or your desktop settings.

To restore ability to change your desktop settings and select a different wallpaper and screen saver do the following:

Start, run

type Gpedit.msc

Navigate to User configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, Display

Right click on Remove Display in Control Panel
Click on Properties and select Disabled

Do the same steps to change the following attributes to disabled:

Hide Desktop Tab
Prevent changing wallpaper
Hide Apperance and Themes tab
Hide Settings tab
Hide Screen Saver tab

You should now be able to use your computer normally and change the wallpaper/screensaver to something other than the warning message Antivirus XP 2008 set it to.
