Won't let me into properties. I used this string of commands:
control panel>display?desktop>customize desktop>web>
Also no 'security info' present
Control panel > display > desktop can you choose a new background there ?
You cannot right click on the desktop to get to display properties ?
Cannot change display at control panel. It clicks like it wants to change...but background stays white.
Right clicking on the desktop itself gives me no properties...only five of six title lines...like protocol and type and connection and address and size and created and modified.
Ok lets go through running smitrem.bat again, if when you double click it a text opens let me know, no need to run it while in safe mode this time.
Sorry, but I don't understand exactly what you want me to do. Just run Smitrem and send you the log?
Are you sure we ran it in safemode last time?
I suspect it wasnt ran correctly the first time. Otherwise the rightclick on desktop > properties would be there.
delete the file c:\smitfiles.txt, find the smitrem folder open it and run the file called RunThis.bat
when its finished post the c:\smitfiles.txt
Now are display properties available via rightclick on desktop > properties and can you change items on the display > desktop page ?
Can't change the display. I can change it and it will go to the new selection during startup, but just before the icons appear the screen turns first blue and then white.
A right-click on desktop only gets me these six lines in the property box:
protocol, type, connection, address, size, created, modified.
Im not sure what to suggest and we do not seam to be making any progress, perhaps taking the pc to a local shop and let them work on it would be best.
