I just looked at my System preferences, In the one for desktop, there is a little box that says 'change picture'. Make sure to un-check that box.

My iMac froze and won't reboot

Your question is incomplete. Your imac froze and wont reboot. What you see on screen when you start it? Do you see a spining wheel or a folder sign with a question mark or a blue screen? If yes then it's either corrupt/damaged osx or bad hard drive.
Good luck.

My mcintosh screen become locked so I turned it off and waited about 1/2 hour before turning it back on. It took a long time before the screen turned blue and thats where it sits. Nothing else has pulled...

Try rebootint with your OSX disk in the dvd drive. then before you would hear the chime, press and hold the C key down on your keyboard. This will boot from the DVD and once it has finished loading (may take some time) will ask your to choose your language. After this go to utilities in the menu at the top and click on Disk Utility. When this opens, click on your hard drive on the left hand side (highighted in orange in picture), and then click repair disk and after that completes click repair permissions. (see picture)fairplay23.png After all of this shut down and restart your computer without the OSX dvd in the drive and it should boot normally.
Let me know if this works

On the left Top of your monitor is a apple Logo.Tip on it and select "About that Mac" A Window pops up and you select "More Info" it shows you the OSX on it. OSX 10.3 or OSX 10.4 Google "Safari Browser for OSX 10.? " Download it and it will work. You may have the latest Version.

I have imac. and i want to change his operating

Yes it is very easy to do as you are running a Mac with Intel Processor. You have Mac OSx Leopard with updates 1,2, & 3. To upgrade to Mac OSx Snow Leopard you must buy the upgrade. Go here: On the top right click (Buy Now) You will have to pay $29 which is a bargain. Once you get the upgrade on CD simply follow the directions for the simple upgrade. I did the same thing when Snow Leopard came out. It is well worth the $29.

Grey screen

It sounds like a corrution of the "map" it uses for the system, diskwarrior should sort it out but maybe getting the seller to sort it would be fairer, it could also be the hard drive failing

Try resetting the Pmu.
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
