Windows 7: Desktop Background

13 Apr 2011   #11

Windows 7

Ignatz -

Yes - No - and No, not yet anyway.

Okay, here's another symptom. I loaded in the Softpedia program and rebooted as I said earlier. I put in about 100 different pictures into the "backgrounds" folder from which Desktop Changer correctly selected a picture on the initial boot-up, so far so good. Upon subsequent boot-ups, the picture did not change as it's suppose to, just like the Windows desktop backgrounds were doing. The same problem exists.

Now, regarding your three suggestions, 1) sfc /scannow - I punched it up, but no errors were indicated. 2) Since this problem has been going on for some time, I really don't want to restore back that far if possible.
3) Yes, I've considered it, but first I have to find the stupid disk - which I will do later today.

Okay, I uninstalled the Softpedia program and deleted the folder with the 100 pictures I set up for it. Now, unfortunately, I'm stuck with the picture that the Desktop Changer progran initially selected as the Windows selection. Basically it's the exact same problem that existed before. I still think at this point that I'm missing something in the setup/selection part of the "Personalization" process.
