My problem is this: Ive already set my background pictures (presentation), colors, sounds and screensaver as I wished, I saved it and set it as default, but, once I reboot, I found that the theme has changed and the current one appears (in Personalize window) as "Not saved Theme" and actually keeps the last picture used on the theme I created (wich appears right next to this new one) as its ONLY pic.
I can re-set mine again, but everytime I turn on my pc, that will happen over n over again, in fact, I just reinstalled Windows 7 2 nights ago, but the problem remains. I think could b something related to my config or so (I wish).
By the way, Im using Kaspersky I S -2010, Google Desktop and a couple little programs starting with Windows.
Thougth that might help.
Please help me, the cool appearance and presentation features is one of the things I like the most about Seven (among a lot of other great stuff).
