windows xp - I downloaded wallpaper software which kept crashing my pc - I uninstalled the software but my desktop background is flashing from orange to white and the icons appear to be continually highlighted.I have tried desktop properties to change the wallpaper but it wont go back to normal - unfortunately I cant use xp's system restore

Try reinstalling graphics card driver. If this doesn't do it go to RUN/ type sfc /scannow (note space) and it'll replace any corrupt system files (this is assuming you've got an xp disc).
