Try deleting the TranscodedWallpaper.jpg

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\TranscodedWallpaper.jpg

See if that makes any difference. If not, I'd run the System File Checker. If you use 3rd party themes, you'll have to repatch after.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
