    In attempt to get rid of some unneeded documents on my computer I tried to filter through my downloads to delete old downloads. I thought I was only deleting things that I had downloaded online, but apparently I deleted something important because now I can't change the desktop background.

    I already (and stupidly) emptied the Trash.

    I dont know what other functions have been disabled. I tried Repair Disk Permissions. And I can't find the plist screensaver thing.

    What do I do now?

    There's nothing in the Downloads folder you could have deleted that would have caused problems. The only file that comes in there is a PDF file that's perfectly safe to delete. More likely something else is the cause. Let us know anything else you've done recently.

    And what do you mean by "can't change background." What method are you using to change it that's not working?
