I have a Toshiba laptop,and the problem is when i right click for display properties all that comes up is Themes, Appearance, and Settings. But I don't have the screensaver or background menu, anyone know why that could be?

Well that's a problem I've never seen before. Has it always been like that?

Boot into safe mode and scan for viruses and malware. Some thing has disabled part of your OS. How did you get the wallpaper up there in the first place?

I've never seen a problem like that before, I'd try repairing windows, reformatting, or virus/malware scanning.
