Windows 7: Desktop Background Wallpaper - Change in Windows 7 Starter

Hi Brink,

i don't think the oceanis program is not working for me because I am able to see the wallpaper vividly when I randomly press any key on the keyboard.

I feel that there is something that is hindering the wallepaper to be shown completely and for this instance I feel it should be due to the checked " turn off all unnecessary animations" and " removed background images " boxes.

If I am able to uncheck them, I think the wallpaper would be abled to show.

You might see if this may be a cause as well by seeing if you may have it set as prevented.

I have checked the Tips & warnings but these seem OK as its a new computer.

I tried uninstalling (and then got a Microsoft background), after re-installing I got the Asus background. It changed OK to my background after running Oceanis but then re-set to the Asus background after a re-boot.

Any help would be apreciated.

OOPS - I have just found the same (or very similar) program already installed under "Eee Tools" - "System Setting"

Problem solved
I have the same exact computer and i found what you are talking about in the tools. Thanks alot!

Hello Korill, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is the program listed in your "Programs and Features" list?

If not, then you might see if restarting the computer and right click on the Oceanis installation EXE file and "Run as administrator" may install it for you instead.

Korill,

No, this is not normal. Did you extract the EXE file to your desktop? You might also check to see if you may have a AV or other security program that may be blocking and removing the exe.

Not sure why it detected it as a trojan, but I can guarantee that this Oceanis program is safe. You might temporarily disable your AV program until after you installed the program, then enable it afterwards.
