ok i'm really pissed off right now.
i got a new toshiba laptop from best buy 3 days ago... has 7 home premium on it. i was able to change my wallpaper and themes just fine until i tried to change my wallpaper tonight. now it won't change. last night windows downloaded and install updates. microsoft sucks.... just like with all other operating systems... they put out all these updates and just screw stuff up. after the update, all my sound settings where all messed up and i had to figure out which one got turned on and off to get them back the way the were before the fabulous update. microsoft really Fn sucks.
when i create a new user account, i can change themes and wallpaper in that just fine. but I DON'T WANT TO START ALL OVER IN ANOTHER USER ACCOUNT.
i already have files and stuff transfered from another computer... etc etc. i just want this simple Fn task to work right.... LIKE IT WAS FOR TWO WHOLE DAYS BEFORE THIS STUPID FKKIN UPDATE.
thats what you get for leaving auto download and install windows updates turned on.
i've tried the patch fix mentioned in the other thread... it doesn't work for me. i've searched for about 2 Fn hours now and tried several things suggested in this forum.
when i apply a new theme... the color of the windows will change according to the theme... but not the wallpaper.
i've tried changing the name of the picture i have set as the current wallpaper to see if maybe nothing would show. didn't work. i've played with the Aero settings wherever i could find them... no affect.
again.... changing my wallpaper was no problem for the first 2 days i had this new laptop... then after the update last night... today i can't change it.
god this is so annoying. i hate microsoft.
has anyone found a solution for this yet? i don't have windows 7 starter... i have home premium.
