Wallpapers Slideshow returns empty

Hello all you awesome windows geeks, i have a little problem, but i will let some screens describe it better:







So i basically want to allow the Wallpaper slideshow to change Wallpapers every so minutes, but as you can see i have some unfortunate problems, any ideas?

Possibly i disabled some service that i shouldn't had, if there are any associated with this, or maybe a bad windows update?

Hi

when was the last time it worked? can you try a restore point when it worked?

Hmm, maybe some several months ago (can't say i kept track of it), I'm not a big fan of formatting windows when something breaks, plus no restore point seems to fix it.

Ok, ran it a few times, said it fixed a bunch of files, i rebooted then ran it again to make sure it fixed everything.
After all that, the Slideshow problem is still there

is it only when you select my pictures or all places. try saving some pictures to a different location and try that location for the slide show.

Just for the sub-folders it seems, it will read the wallpapers that are on the parent folder.
To be more precise, it will read from any parent folder, but not it's sub-folders.
