Windows 7: My wallpaper is getting reset to a specific one no matter what I do

My wallpaper is getting reset to a specific one no matter what I do

I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong thread. I'm new to this forum. So, no matter which wallpaper I choose, it gets changed to the brown wallpaper(in the architecture section) after I shut down and open the computer for a few times. I don't really know when it gets changed, but it doesn't take any longer than 2 days or so. Please help me on this. Thanks

Welcome to Seven Forums amirali75. Have you tried deleting the TranscodedWallpaper.jpg?

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\TranscodedWallpaper.jpg

Start> In search box copy and paste

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

Enter

Right click the TranscodedWallpaper.jpg and rename it to TranscodedWallpaper.old

Accept the change, and see if you can now keep your desired background.

The jpg is a hidden file, so if you do not have windows set to show hidden files, you will need to enable that 1st
