View Full Version : Desktop Themes can't be changed

13-12-2005, 02:15 PM
I am attempting to fix some faults on a friends PC, and one problem is that the desktop Background is 'locked' on an advertisement for the Movie 'Narnia'
When I go to Desktop Properties other backgrounds are listed but they can't be accessed...nothing happens when you click on them.

Also...after booting the PC a message comes up when the desktop loads ..

VCMain.exe Application Error

Can anyone help with these problems?

Have a look at see if this helps.
You cannot change your desktop theme in Windows XP

Is there anything in add remove programs relating to the theme or screensaver that you can uninstall.??

It may also be smitfraud, if the desktop background cant be changed.

Make sure the Active Desktop hasn't been turned on. This displays web-content as a background image.
