i can't click on desktop icons or right click to get desktop properties to appear

I cannot double click on my desktop icons or right click on the desktop to pull up properties menu.  The start menu and everything on the bottom bar works fine.  Not sure what is going on....any thoughts on what the issue may be?  Thanks in advance...

Hi Bottoms52,

 

It might be in your background - an infected or corrupted background picture. 

 

If you are using your own personal photos,

Try replacing the desktop display with a Windows standard display with a single Windows standard background - no slide show.

 

If you are using standard Windows background with slide-show, turn off the slide show.
