What he is talking about is the theme he saved as QL Enabled in the left top corner of the image under My Themes(1) and the bottom left corner of the image that says "Desktop Background" (img0). Both are black. Basically he says the 32bit is not saving the theme correctly or something is corrupting the system and the theme is not being displayed properly upon a reboot.
I also pointed out in an earlier post, that if I turn off UAC I can save the theme and have QL do whatever I want.
Edit: I am unable to test 64bit at this time.
I have done further experiment on 32bit machine which has QL disappearance problem:
The first thing I did after installing the Windows 7 was disabling UAC. The way I did it was changing for Admin user to having it automatically elevated from prompting credentials. This appears to set the slider at the bottom end for "Never Notify". So, this was the condition under which the QL was previously implemented.
This time I set three UAC entries on gpedit.msc/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Seculity Options, which were set as "Enabled" by default to "Disabled". "Prompt for credentials" for the standard user was left as was since there was no option for "Disabled". "Elevate without prompting" for admin users was also left as was. So, all UACs were set as "Disabled" except the above two.
Then, I added QL and saved the theme.
The result was that the QL still disappeared after rebooting but the colour of the wall paper as shown on the Personalization did not turn to black as was previously reported.
The above seems to indicate the UAC has something to do with saving the theme and possibley the QL problem.
