Hi guys i have the same issue


I can't find the folder where all the default desktop backgrounds are located...

i go to c:/windows/web/wallpaper (this is the folder where they're located on my other laptop and my desktop) and its filled with Lenovo wallpapers which aren't even listed in my desktop personalization

i go to c:\users\name\appdata... and its empty there is no Theme folder

im clueless here where are they hidden...

and why in the world would they be in a different folder than my desktop...? (they're both Windows 7 Pro 64bit)
