Please can anyone help? When I right click on a blank space on my desk top and bring up the Display Properties box I am unable to change any of the settings IE the Themes, Desk top Pictures etc.. I get the message "Program not responding"

try a repair

Start - run - type sfc /scannow
press ok

watch the space after the c
windows will replace corrupt or missing system files.

this may solve your problem.
