Becci,

What's the data assigned to "Wallpaper" in this registry key?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

Type Regedit.exe in Start/Run to access the Registry Editor.

Becci,

Does the problem occur when you select a JPG file for your wallpaper?
Windows converts the JPG file (to .BMP) and places a copy in this folder:

%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft

File name: Wallpaper1.bmp
