Well, the install went smoothly, thank goodness.
Had to contact Microsoft to get them to re-activate but that wasn't a problem.
Tried the background slideshow and it worked!
So, just in case, I made regular system restore points as I was installing my regularly used software. All was well until I used Tuneup Utilities 2013....
For those that don't know, there is an option to optimize the registry. I do this as a part of my routine when installing this piece of software. Tuneup's optimization stops the background picture slideshow from working! I tried a restore to see if that put the issue right but unfortunately the restore points (I found) do not save the registry, so when I tried to use the slideshow it didn't work.
Luckily I did a system backup after installing my systems drivers and a few updates from Microsoft but nothing else and hey presto, it works again!
Would love to know which registry settings Tuneup changes or removes during optimization though so I can try to avoid this happening again.
