Hi all... After searching a few days around I've noticed that several users have the same problem with a black desktop background showing after rebooting Windows 7. I'm using the ultimate version, activated with Chew-WGA 0.8.2. Everything went fine 100%. Windows is fully activated. I kept away from downloading any updates however just to make sure. The intriguing thing is that no matter what I do, when I reboot the desktop background automatically sets to Solid Color - Black. No problems with the icons or the taskbar or nags. It just creates a new theme called "Unsaved Theme" and sets it default each time I boot the machine. I've deleted it but it keeps showing every time. I can change it back to my favorite theme immediately after, but I admit it's a little frustrating not being able to keep my desktop settings and having to access Personalizations after every reboot. I read some other members here like Paft have the same exact problem so I was wondering if anybody here could help. I know it's a modest minor problem, however I like to keep things running smoothly if you know what I mean. Would it be a solution removing 0.8.2 and installing 0.9 instead? Is this a problem related to the patch? If anyone could help I'd be very glad to hear suggestions. Thanks in advance.
