Desktop properties won't workIf Desktop-properties won't work that can be caused by change in Registry base.
1. Make backup of your registry base.
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVerison \ControlsFolder\Display\shellex\PropertySheetHandlers
There can be lots of keys , but standard and important are only:
- DeskHtmlExt, and
- PlusPack CPL extension
Keep just those two, and delete other keys.
Close Registry, and restart computer. Subscribe in a reader
