Windows 7: Custom themes not working (Pictures Library)

Custom themes not working (Pictures Library)


I have an AMD Radeon Card in Windows 7 machin. I'm expiriencing problems with the Desktop themes when trying to modify one.

I had made one custom theme based on [Pictures Location] Pictures Library which suddently has stoped working.

Now if I try to modify any theme, when selecting "Pictures Library" the selection box flaws to "Solid Colors" and I can't see my pictures any more.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Thank you,


SOLVED: Disabling "Windows Search service" will result it the above behavour.

Enabling it solved the issue.
