cant change my background

i have an hp pavilion and i recently put windows 7 on it my backgrounds were fine when i first installed it.

i search the internet for a good picture i want to use for my background. i right click it. then set as desktop background. then the window that asks the position, color, and has a preview on it pops up. i click set desktop background. the window stays there. (I'm sure its supposed to disappear), and the taskbar flashes then goes away without any change to my background.

ive tried changing my theme background. when i choose to change the desktop background in my theme it shows that every picture i have is selected. i go through all the picture locations and deselect all of them. when i go back to a picture location that i have already deselected all of the pictures in it are selected again.????? i don't get it

right now my background is stuck at a solid color and that is the only thing i seem to be able to change about it

i cant say for sure but i think this all started after i installed the last update. i dont want to mess things up by undoing important updates.
