    Hello Trumpetrousers, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It's a false positive. Oceanis is a direct download from our site (Seven Forums), and is 100% completely safe and clean.

    oops sorry I was getting Mad!


    Hiya guys,
    Sorry I was getting a bit steamed up round the gills...Oceanic? my spelling indeed.. doh! and it all makes me look like a twerp.
    It was my Ma's new laptop, I had been setting it all up and when I tried the wall paper...She wanted Degas' dancing girls(!) - nothing - after repeatedly pressing, 'make this wallpaper' still in the menus, this was when i was slightly frustrated, I had no idea it was tight old Microsoft...And so on...The thought that I had stuck a virus on my Ma's new laptop before she had pressed a key.
    So I joined up to have a moan.
    But it looks good here,
    So if I didn't make too much of a nuisance I'll stay.

    Windows 7 Starter edition comes with one desktop background, which can't be changed or customized.
    From windows.microsoft.com

    Before I join Windows Seven Forums, I read all about Microsoft Windows 7 articles in Microsoft website. I found one that Windows 7 Starter has only one desktop background and no way to change it.

    In Windows Seven Forums, I found this perfect tutorial for Windows 7 Starter to change desktop background by using 3rd party software. But Microsoft wouldn't recommend it.

    Microsoft would recommend upgrading from Windows 7 Starter to at least Windows 7 Home Premium using Windows Anytime Upgrade or clean install.

    You can use Windows Anytime Upgrade to upgrade to another edition of Windows 7 that will allow you to change your desktop background (and get more features and functionality).
    Will installing update for Windows 7 Starter from Microsoft restores to original desktop background?

    If you upgrade from Starter to another edition, then yes.

    Hiyya Martin we all get wound up sometimes so no probs at least you were man enough to stand up and be counted.

    Mate all you have to do is Google those dancing girls find some pics save to My Pictures or snip them and save to say desktop (wherever) and then just in the Control Panel > Personalisation > Desktop Wallpaper > it will ask you to browse > pick the site where you saved the picture/s and hit on the one you want - done!

    Try here http://www.google.com.au/search?q=de...w=1920&bih=911

    Oops meant to say hit the show more for even more

    Hi, thanks for sharing, its just that I find it a problem that I have to open the program everytime. Is there a way you can fix this?

    Thanks, GG

    Oh, You don't need to keep the program running to keep the background! When you click "Save Changes" it automatically closes by itself! I must of been mistaken by "If the Oceanis program is closed, then the desktop background goes with it. You will need to leave the Oceanis program running to keep the background." meaning I must keep the program as an open window.
    Anyway, this has been the BIGGEST help! I don't feel like I have a stupid computer now :)

    Thank you so much for the help with the background wallpaper, but however, the Personalization Panel won't let mechange the colour of the window frame and taskbar. Is there a way to do that for Windows Starter?
