    Ok i need help as per the title of this post. When i open system preferences and click desktop & screen saver it locks up and then closes! I can right click on the desktop and choose change desktop background but it opens automatically on the screen saver tab and when i click the desktop tab it then locks up and closes. i think it might be something to do with the picture i have on the desktop atm but im not sure!

    Any help will most appreciated..

    Cheers ppl!

    Have you tried restarting or repairing permissions through Disk Utility?

    Maybe try changing it through right-click in Safari?
