Windows ME no longer allows user to change desktop

  tfoxon 12:37 02 Apr 2004

some friends of mine are having problems with their PC. When they try to change the background on the PC desktop they get a message saying that they do can not change it. They have tried right clicking on the desktop and then properties as well as going into the control panel. This is a new problem, it wasn't always this way.

They have been using the internet but the do not have any antivirus software or firewall in place. Could this be the work of a virus or trojan. Anyone have a suggestion?
