Can't delete desktop theme?

Made an album theme, but want to delete it and start anew. Although I have cleared all from desktop background and rebooted, it is still there???

EDIT: All drives are definitely up to date.

Did you switch to a new theme 1st? You have to exit from the theme to be able to delete it. Sorry if that is what you meant by "cleared all from desktop background". A Guy
