    That's right, you now cannot create an Active Desktop Wallpaper. Now you must use standard picture wallpapers, like we all do.

    Click Start
    Click Run
    Type: regedit

    Navigate to the following registry entry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    "Wallpaper"=SZ:C:\WINDOWS\desktop.html (yours might be slightly different)

    Click one time on the entry
    Push Delete on the keyboard
    Click Yes
    Close the Registry editor

    Hmm when I get to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" there isn't a system folder, only an "Explorer" one...

    Maybe Repair is looking good
