Re background back again

Just wanted to thank you for all the suggestions and let you know it is now fixed(I hope). My 17 year old grandson discovered a small icon in my task bar that was "auto wallpaper changer" Don't know where it came from but he deleted it and my original background was still there this morning.I do appreciate all the help.

What version of windows are you using exactly? Your spec says Ultimate x64

To find out:

Click on the
Type System Information in Search hit enter.

That should tell you what version of windows you are using.

You may also download Speccy to know your system specs.
Download Speccy 1.17.340 - FileHippo.com

Also run SFC Scannow and reboot if violations are found.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Post back.

Please post a snip of what your desktop looks like now. It would be easier to understand the problem with your background/personalization.
