Windows 7: Wallpaper won't stick after reboot

Wallpaper won't stick after reboot

Hello guys, I've been running Windows7x64 RTM for about 3 months now. For a couple of days now, whenever i reboot my system it reverts to an old wallpaper i set some time ago. I tried changing the theme & aero border color to see whether it sticks after a reboot & it does! I checked the group policy settings for any change & didn't find any. I use up2date AV & I'm fairly certain that my system hasn't been compromised. I'm a fairly sophisticated user & find this very annoying. Kindly help.

Try removing all wallpaper, before replacing with new, see what happens.

Get some wall paper paste

On the otherhand, deleing all wall papers before you stick on a new one is your best bet.

Or, try another wall paper?

OK..Problem solved! It was 'FastStone MaxView' that was causing the problem. I was using this program to set my wallpaper & apparently it isn't compatible with Windows 7. I switched backed to 'FastStone Image Viewer 4.0' which i've been using for some time & now there are no more issues. Thank you guys for helping me out.
