Close all windows and quit all applications. Hold the option key down and click the "Go" menu in the Finder menubar.Select "Library" from the dropdown, then "Preferences" folder. Look for these three files. com.apple.screensaver.plist             com.apple.desktop.plistcom.apple.systempreferences.plist Right click each  one of those and select " Move To Trash" from the contextual menu. Restart the computer.
