hey, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-bit... everytime I manually change my desktop wallpaper, by selecting Next Desktop Background I get a weird lag... the wallpapers are on my internal drive...so no idea what could possibly be 'causing this lag... I highly doubt it has anything to do with the internal hard-drive either, as it doesn't lag when it changes automatically ! ...even when the frequency is just 10 seconds ! it ain't anything major at all, but it does get irritating A permanent solution is most welcome Cheers ! ------------- Other Notes :: ---------------------- I had upgraded from Vista to 7 ... incase that could be a possible issue... (assuming it has anything to do with system files...) already tried running sfc /scannow .... as I had to do it anyways for the Explorer issue I had, ( ...check my other topic. . . ) still have the same wallpaper change lag issue. . .
