Windows 7: Desktop wallpaper

Desktop wallpaper

Hi, My problem is that I can't 'show next background' on my windows home premium computer just one picture shows. I have dreamscape installed so decided to uninstall but still the problem is there. I have tried the suggested fixes eg. file scan, visual effects is selected 'adjust for best appearance', have made sure that slideshow is available in advanced power options but still no good. I have created a new user account and all is OK there. I would like to transfer everything over to the new account and start again, can I do this and how? System restore can only be started in safe mode. I have tried this but still no good. Have made sure that malawarebytes has scanned for any viruses and all is OK there.
I have my computer just the way I want it and would prefer a fix rather than starting all over. I have windows 7 64 bit. Thanks.

Video desktop wallpaper ? (where did it go?)
I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Previously I had Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit and that had some funky video wallpaper (like burning cauldron, etc).
