    I had the same problem, I found a temporary fix which is better than resetting the computer. Although its a pain in the... first get the trusty taskmgr and end the explorer.exe then file-run-explorer.exe just thought I'd share and this is my first post, hope I helped a little

    Sorry for popping up the topic. I've encountered the same problem after switching to classic interface and back. I tried all the described methods. None worked. Using Process Monitor I found out that when trying to change wallpaper explorer.exe tries to rewrite file TranscodedWallpaper.jpg located in %profile_path%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\ and it results with ACCESS_DENIED event. I checked permissions but everything was OK. The only difference with other profile was that folder %profile_path%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\ itself and files in were hidden. Changing file attributes solved the problem. Maybe it can help someone.

    Perfect


    For the record,

    I updated to the latest Nvidia drivers and that brought on the non-stop black screen, regardless or reboots or other changes.

    Majestic had it right. Once you update your user experience (faster to right click My Computer and choose Properties BTW) the problem is solved.

    I have what appears to be the same problem on a brand-new install of W7 Pro - and it only happens to one particular username in an active directory domain. There are no games installed, and if I log on using a different user name, everything is normal. This is a weird one.

    Also, FYI, we have discovered that programs and apps with either "setup" or "update" as part of the file name always require Administrative permissions to run, regardless of what they actually do.

    Quick FIX for the problem


    I had the same problem and what had happened a box was checked in the ease of access saying "Remove background images (where availible)" it is a quick fix

    Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Ease of Access -> Ease of Access Center

    Once the dialoge box opens click "Make the computer easier to see" Scroll down and uncheck the box by "Remove background images (where availible)" Hit "Apply" then "Ok" and then on your keyboard hit "Alt + F4" you may have to log out and log back in before it takes affect

    Wallpaper dissappears after startup!!!


    My wallpaper is there until toolbar and desktop icons load and then its GONE!

    It all started tonight, when I was on the internet & saw an image that I wanted on wallpaper, so I right-clicked on it and selected 'set as wallpaper'...then instead of my you-beaut image up on the screen, IT WAS TOTALLY WHITE!!!

    The only thing I can put it down to is my recent installation of Firefox? Other than that, nothing has changed.

    RESCUE ME PLEASE!!!!!!
