OCEANICS

MY ANTIVIRUS KEEPS BLOCKING THE APPLICATION SAYING IT'S TROJAN VIRUS.
ENDED UP GOING FOR A DIFFERENT OPTION (BULLDOG7) AND NOW HAVE NO WALLPAPER- ITS BLANK AND BLACK
BETTER THAN THE WINDOWS' ONE

Hello Magrtani, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's not a virus or malware. Oceanis is perfectly safe to use. I scanned it thoroughly before recommending and attaching it in the tutorial for download.

You are getting a false positive from your antivirus program. Do you have a option in your antivirus program to white list this program, or add it to some sort of safe program list to allow it to run?

You might also check the items in the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial for the black screen to see if that may be able to help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You're welcome.

Be sure to check the items in the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial about the black screen to see if it may be something that simple to fix it though.

Hello Amie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No, only the Windows 7 Starter edition. Windows 7 Home Basic has the change desktop background feature included in it.

Hope this helps,

Amie,

I'm sorry, I was not aware that the Windows 7 Home Basic edition does not have the Personalization option either, and will only allow you to change the desktop background by right clicking on a image and clicking on Set as desktop background.

I just tested the Oceanis program in Windows 7 Home Basic, and it works perfectly fine in it. You should be able to use it with no problem.
