Windows 7 Basic (whatever it's called) won't let you change your background. Not sure what the other issue is.

What Crazy Wolf said about W7 Starter. I'm going to guess that your pop-up blocker on your browser is the problem for your other issue, when ti tells you that the download is blocked, click the message and it will give you the option to allow that particular popup (at least in Internet Explorer), IE is really annoying about that.

"ti" was a mistype, sorry. And when you download something and IE blocks a popup, a little cream colored bar appears near the top, click that for options, past that I don't know, I only use IE to download better browsers *shrug* And I have no idea why pro would restrict you, maybe a reformat is in order? Sometimes that fixes weird bugs ;)

I have no idea either, I was just going off of basic knowledge from IE 8 I guess, and in response to your not wanting to reinstall windows, might I suggest installing a dual partition of Linux? It won't play most games well (hence having a Windows partition and a Linux partition where windows is for games and Linux is for everything else), but does everything else well, especially superuser functions. I suggest posting a new thread in the Tech Forum to help you out, mostly because this is more of a troubleshooting thread and I sincerely don't know what's wrong with your browser.
