Unable to change the wallpaper

Unable to change the wallpaper
Resolutions:877

Batch file attached: clearPolicy
Description: This batch file removes all policy settings for the current user and recreates the default ones. It also removes machine level folder options and system restore restrictions.

Many spyware programs modify the group policy settings in the registry to prevent the user from modifying an advertising wallpaper.

You can either run the attached batch file or follow the steps below:


Click Start, choose Run and execute regedit.

Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

Delete all the folders under this key related to Wallpaper or Active Desktop or simply delete all the keys.



If you are getting messages that the registry editing has been disabled by your System Administrator and you are not on a corporate network, you might be the victim of a spyware/virus program and we strongly advise you to submit a HijackThis log on the My Fixes Forums by going to the following link: http://www.myfixes.com/slides/spyware-27

A quick registration process will be required.
