    HP 2000 laptop - Desktop Background

    Have some 16 pictures set run through every 10 secs only when not on battery.

    Something is resetting them by turning it off and stays on one picture. Have to then go into 'Personalization/Desktop Background' and turn them back on.

    They are stored C:\Users\myusername\My Pictures\My Desktop Pics (16)

    Any clues why the Background is resetting to one picture.

    Thanks

    Thanks,

    No, the shuffle is turned off.

    No, the loop will continue for a few days shutting down/restarting each day.

    As for the link, that's the way it's setup.

    Would Malware bytes or Antivirus scanning reset the loop turning 15 of the 16 off from loop, although no warning of doing so or anything logged in the two programs to show.

    I have no idea because I have not set up a slide show on any of our Win 7 computers.

    I was reading that people who use programs to remote into a computer, like LogMeIn, have this problem.
