I'm went to the Ring 2 website and I'm trying to set one
of their images as my desktop background (Set as
Background) and I'm getting an "Invalid Argument" popup
error. Any ideas?

More about : set image background

Hi Marc,

Right click on the image and select "Save picture as..." to the My
Picture's folder in the My Documents.
In Display Properties - Desktop tab select the image as your
background.

Bert,

This is happening for any image. I just used that one as
an example. Do you know what might be wrong and how to
fix it so I can once again use the "Set as Background"
option?

Thanks,

Marc
