Desktop Background can't be changed. Every time We Pick a New Image, and click apply, it reverts back to the Image we had on there at the Time of the Upgrade.
Started with Windows 7 Starter, upgraded to Windows 7 Premium 32-Bit
Acer Aspire Notebook, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150, Intel Atom 450 1.66Ghz
For my G/F and she's a Noob , so we are a 2 Noob Family, lol...Posted Image

Yes, went to this Link, followed instructions works "OK", we had to Un-Install another Wallpaper Program( it was one suggested by another Moderator Here, from some Developer in France) that She had installed when she had Windows 7 Basic...However still having some Graphics Display problems when playing Video//Gaming (Especially when she Plays Diablo2//LoD-Online, and now Final Fantasy XI-Online) Getting the "Mirror Image Effect" on Colors...Kind of hard to see what's going on and We Set-up BOTH at 256 Colors....

Do you have latest drivers for your graphic card. Check Windows Update to see if there is driver available for you...

With regards,
