Of course not. You could use something like this to change your wallpaper instead.

Personalization does not stay?

I have a brand spanking new ASUS Notebook UL30VT Windows 7 Home Premium 64. OH Joy!! The desktop personalization does not stay? Every time the system boots initially it has the desktop background but then changes to a default blistering white ASUS logo screen! It is so bright some of of the icons become invisible. Any ideas why this is happening and how I might resolve this? Thanks!!

Hello Doug, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might double check to see if you may have a startup program that is loading the ASUS logo screen as your desktop background and overriding the Oceanis program. If you do, then temporarily disable it to confirm it before deleting it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi there,
whenever i download an image off the net to use as a background it always appears blocky. I have tried different resolutions of images but they all end up the same, am i doing something wrong?

Hello Deldiablo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you upload and attach an example of one these images for us to take a look at and test on our system to see what may be wrong?

Could you upload the actual full size copies instead? You can place them in a ZIP file if they are to large. I can't test these since they are to small.

Well, if that is the size that you downloaded, then that is your problem. One is only 150x113, and the other is only 102x150. They would appear as you described if used as a wallpaper since they are to small. It looks like you have downloaded the thumbnail version of the image instead of the larger (actual) version. You may have needed to click on them at the site where you got them to get a larger version instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
