Windows 7: Unable to set slide show background or save new themes Win7

Unable to set slide show background or save new themes Win7

Hey guys, first post here.

Basically I'm trying to set a slideshow as my desktop background but everytime I click the Desktop Background link in Personalization it always takes me to this: imgur: the simple image sharer

And even if I go to where my background selection is, it just won't save the changes.

Also if I select a theme I made before this started happening (With a slide show background) I should normally be able to right click desktop > Next desktop background. But that either doesn't work, or doesn't show up at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

P.S I recently installed "DreamScene", "Windows 7 Start Orb Changer" and "StartOrbz Studio (Although I haven't used this one yet)" I figured it would have something to do with one of these, but anything I try isn't working

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Go to C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes folder and rename the slideshow.ini to slideshow.bak.ini and delete the TranscodedWallpaper.jpg reboot and see if you can set a slideshow and save theme.
