Windows 7: Logon Wallpaper Keeps Reverting Back To A Pic

Logon Wallpaper Keeps Reverting Back To A Pic

I'm at a complete loss. Some time back, I used a program called Ultimate Windows Tweaker to change the logon (NOT the desktop) wallpaper on my laptop to an Aliens vs. Predator game wallpaper. Shortly thereafter, I used the same program to change the wallpaper to one of Scrat from the Ice Age movies. Since that time, my laptop has consistently changed the logon background to the AvP pic, despite deleting both the pic, the theme (which was separate but I was desperate), using a cleaning tool (Privazer) to get rid of thumbnails, MRU's, etc.
  • I changed the theme to something else just in case there was some hangup I wasn't aware of.
  • I downloaded a 3rd party search tool called UltraSearch because the native one sucks and I cannot find any trace of the AvP pic on my computer and yet I'm consistently getting it back.
  • I manually went into the folder that holds the logon pic and manually deleted it yet it still comes back.
  • I even tried renaming the AvP pic and leaving it in place but no avail.
I'm obviously missing a place where at least a thumbnail is residing but I cannot think of where. All Google talks about is where the desktop wallpaper keeps reverting but my desktop pic is fine and remains constant. Help!
