Hi, I just figured out how to fix it myself by a complete accident!
1) have the image you want to be your background
2) rename said image to "img0" without the quotes
3) create a system restore point, this is encase all else fails and it's also required
4) go to C:\windows\web\wallpaper\windows\
5) drag, drop, and replace the the sunflower picture with your img0
6) now right click on img0 and click "set as desktop background"
7) your screen should be fully black now, that's alright. This happened with me and now I have a custom background. Go to "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Recovery" without quotes. Now recover from your system recovery point you made in step 3 and Voila! after the recovery is made your image is now set.

everything can be found by searching the charms menu or right clicking on start and search. also right clicking on start gives you admins controls. install classic desktop brings you a familiar look.

Hi, you can try this tool Bionix Wallpaper Changer. I recently found it and it seems is pretty good and easy to use. it doesn't fail. this program changes the program at a specified time interval and it can change the wallpaper too at a specified hour. see this page for info: http://www.bionixwallpaper.com/articles/change%20the%20...
