I can't change my desktop from a black background to a picture(Even if I Right click the picture from a website and put it as background). Whenever I log out though I can see the pic I put for a few seconds, but as soon as the computer is loaded it goes back to black. I wanna get back the the option that is greyed out on the desktop tab under background.

Go to Start-Run and type "services.msc" without quotes and press ok

From the list select Themes and check whether it is disabled and stopped, if disabled, enable and start it

dear merch,
click on this link:- http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
go to Line 128. Restore Desktop and Screensaver Tabs then click on it a windows would come up
click on save and save it on the desktop and then run it,it would ask u whether you want to add this info to the registry click on yes and restart the system. its a registry tweak and that should solve the prob.
thanks

unregister:
ubiwm.dll

start > run > cmd
regsvr32 /u ubiwm.dll

remove using hjt:
