The built-in Windows 7 desktop wallpaper changer is great...but it quit changing today. Any idea why this is happening?

I've had that happen before. usually I just go into the wallpaper and pick a few new pics and it goes back to working again. I'm unsure what causes it.

Did you happen to use Remote Desktop? There is a known issue with RDC and slideshow.

Remote desktop into the Windows 7 box, or remote desktop from the Windows 7 box. I don't RDP into it..but I do RDP from it regularly.

Remote Desktop into the machine messes up the slide show.

I can't remote into my Win 7 PC as it's Home Premium, but I do remote out of it into my XP Pro PC.
