  1. My desktop background starts randomly turning green


    I attached a GIF of this happening. It's random, sometimes it reverts back by refreshing graphics drivers but it keeps happening. I'm concerned! Is it a virus? Is it something wrong with my graphics card? Is it something wrong with the Win10 OS itself? Note that the artifacts on the screen is just from converting the video to a gif, it's just plain green in reality.

    :)

    Lost desktop background

    I did a Search & Distroy spyware scan the other day, and one of the suggested "fixes" said something about removing Active Desktop. Like the muppet I am I clicked yes and am now without a desktop background picture.

    Does anyone have an idea how to reverse this? If I try to select a picture it's simply not added as a background.
