wallpaper changer does not work

Hey all,

Recently ago i bought a laptop, i made a selection of wallpaper (118 total) wich i have set to change every day.

i selected all the wallpapers and i put the timer on to change every 12 hours.

and here is my problem, i the wallpapers dont change, i'm lookin at the same wallpaper for 3 days now and the only way i get another wallpaper is when i change it myself.

Welcome to Seven Forums Lukoo. Try this:

Start> In seach box type (copy and paste this)


And press enter. You should see only one TranscodedWallpaper.jpg and the slideshow.ini

Open the .ini file with notepad, and delete the contents, then save the new, blank .ini file.

Reboot PC and see if the scheduled wallpaper change is working again.
