    Just wanted to let you know the problem started again and I found out the cause. Windows Update always wants to install an older driver for my video card. I had hid the update, but I had also hidden a update I later decided I wanted. I forgot about the video card update and unhid both and installed. I was checking driver dates today and noticed the date for the video card driver was wrong. I updated the driver again (along with a couple others) and no more flashing. I also found a post in another forum stating that the update I installed was made specifically to fix the problem.

    Please help me!

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate and I can select multiple images but I am not able to change the time of the slideshow! I don't even have that option.. neither shuffle.. I only have the dropdown menu to change the way Windows should adjust the image (stretch the image, center..)

    Help?

    Hello Difusal,

    Are you using a Aero theme?

    Did you have DreamScene installed in Vista, and did a upgrade install to Windows 7?

    Dream scene? What is that?

    Problem is solved!! I didn't notice there was a bar we could scroll down.. It's nonsense.. Just because I'm using a portuguese language pack.. The problem is that there is a large sentence which doesn't feet the window size.. So the window would reorganise and make several paragraphs! If I scroll down, voilla! The options are just right there.. Too stupid to be true.. But a lot of people have had this problem from what I've searched. But as this kind of personalization windows aren't usually that big, people would have never thought that we just needed to scroll down..

    Thanks anyway!

    DreamScene was a bonus feature in Vista Ultimate that allowed you to have animated desktops. It was removed in Windows 7 though.

    LOL, I'm happy to hear that it was only somthing simple that you got sorted out. I'll add a note in the tutorial to help with this. :)

    Hey shawn, can we reduce the interval to less than one second i.e. in milliseconds, I tried to put 0.1 and 1/10 but none of them is working, though msdn site says interval time can be reduced to milliseconds. See here: Theme File Format (Windows)

    Hello Niceguy,

    In the registry, the value is in milliseconds, but it can still only be set with the millisecond equavalent of seconds for what you can in step 6.
