As I still see no system specs, I'll just offer my work around. D/L the free Irfanview and install it (it's a great program to have anyway, I set it as my default image viewer). Open the image you want as wallpaper in Irfanview. On top menu> Options> Set as wallpaper> Center. That should work fine, and you can use that method to set your wallpaper. A Guy
