Ive just reinstalled XP.downloaded from MS update.
In display properties I select Descktop, load an image, (an xp or my own image), apply to save. Oncwe I access after the screensaver has kicked in the is no image just icons on a blank screen. Is there a problem with a file in Registry?

Go to Start->Run and and type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotations, but note the space after sfc)

You will need your WinXP installation disk.....
