Hello friends!

I want to set a wallpaper. I set it. I see it on my desktop. I refresh my desktop. It vanishes and instead of it all i can see is desktop background color. I set the theme back to Windows XP, with default wallpaper as it automatically changes. Now when i refresh again, the wallpaper doesn't go, it still remains. I tried setting different wallpapers, but to no avail.

I also noticed one more thing-when i refresh and the wallpaper goes, i cannot set another wallpaper also. When i again select "set as wallpaper" on different pic or the same, nothing happens. The background color still shows itself.

Please help. This is pinching me hard!

Thank You

Have you got a pic of the wallpaper you are trying to use located in your documents? If not, that may be why it doesn't stay on your PC. If you select a wallpaper online and set it as your background, it won't stay on your PC long unless you save it to your PC.
