    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..

    Have you tried restarting or repairing permissions through Disk Utility?
