    Hi all!
    System:
    [COLOR=#144789! important][COLOR=#144789! important]Laptop[/COLOR][/COLOR]
    [​IMG]
    LG, K2-PRO
    RAM: 2.5 GB
    Graphic Card on Board
    Windows 7 RC1, build 7100.

    I can change only solid colors but not pictures on the desktop.

    I can use Aero Desktop with full transparency it means that problem is not graphical card or RAM (2.5 GB)..

    Secondary I tried check the system for broken or modified files.

    I opened CMD window as Admin, and typed SFC /SCANNOW. Get message: "Windows Resource Protection did not fined any integrity violations."

    I don't know what to do..:(

    Will be very nice if somebody would send me advice to vmichael@nana.co.il

    Thanks a lot!

    You may need to change Picture Location:

    ~~~~~~~~~

    Note:

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

    ~~~~~~~~~


    If you still can't change the background, open this with windows explorer:

    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\

    empty this folder (delete or move its files to a different location if you want to back up).

    Reboot.

    nope it wont change ..
    i've tried every thing i know.
    it's driving me crazy

    ok
    i delete every thing in
    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
    than i change to default windows 7 theme and that blue wallpaper (TranscodedWallpaper.jpg)
    came back..
    so there is no problem with locations.

    when i logof or turnof wallpaper shows but on desktop only sold color.

    Control Panel --> Users --> Create New Admin Account,
    try changing wallpapers under the new account.
