Desktop Background and Slide Show

I am running W7 premium and cannot get the slideshow to run nor change my desktop background picture. I have tried all the settings on the laptop but nothing works.

Try setting a slideshow using the below tutorial. Remember to change your advanced Power Plan settings too.

Thanks for the info - I have tried all that - it appears that my System Control Manager which controls these thing is not working. I have no idea how to fix it.

Take a look at the following thread taken from the Microsoft Technet forums.
System Control Manager

According to a poster who works at MSI, the System Control Manager is safe to uninstall. But do so at your own risk, it may not be the same for everyone.

You might wana consider doing this:

First go to control panel turn on "show hidden files" in folder option
navigate to : %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\

From here you should be able to see the TranscodedWallpaper & a slideshow.ini, right click delete both.

Do a reboot and setup your wallpaper slideshow again as usual.


Hope it will solve your problem
