I did this.

2) Set *.mpg or *.wmv as Desktop Background.
How? The only way I can get the *.mpg file to show renaming it to *.jpg, but then it still won't set as the wallpaper. The wallpaper stays the same when I choose it.

3) Right-click desktop > Personalize > Desktop Wallpaper.

Quote:
4) Select the hidden *.jpg.
What hidden *.jpg?

Quote:
5) Set *.mpg or *.wmv as Desktop Background again.
How do you do this?

Quote:
Works until reboot. Maybe someone can create a file to run at startup for a more permanent fix. I don't think it would be to difficult but it's beyond my capability.
I'll post a way how after I can get this to work.

A command prompt box comes up with the message press any key to install and then "you must have admin rights", so I right click and run as administrator and same thing happens again.

This fix seems to work. There are some flickerings at shutdown and startup, but works.
Just execute 'install fix.bat'.
Cheers!
P.S. This fixes the transparent text from desktop icons. It doesn't activate dreamscene.

Fix transparent icon text from desktop & automatically reenable Dreamscene whenever it encounters an error

WHAT IT DOES
------------
* This script fixes the transparent icon text from your desktop:
- Goes to folder '%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows DreamScene\' which is usually 'C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows DreamScene\'
- Deletes files 'DreamScene.jpg' and 'Img001.jpg' and replaces them whith folders whith the same name, making them read only
I could've just made them read only by attributes, but a flickering of them might appear occasionally
- Copy files 'Image1.jpg' and 'Image2.jpg' to this folder and set them as desktop background slideshow
These files are 1 black pixel each. They will appear as black screen at startup and shutdown for a few moments.
You can replace them with anything you want, if you don't like black too much.
The fix is valid even if you change the video background or restart the computer.
But if you manually change the desktop background image, or mess-up with personalization, this fix is disabled, so, you need to apply it again.
* Automatically activates Dreamscene on startup whenever "Windows Dreamscene encountered an error", usually when the computer doesn't shutdown normally (power failure or reset).
