Unable to change background picture in Windows 7 (KB2504610)

This issue can be caused by one or more of the following issues:

  • There are third-party applications like Display Manager from Samsung. (resolution, uninstall)
  • Background setting in the power options is disabled
  • The Remove background images option is incorrectly checked (Control Panel\Ease of Access\Ease of Access Center\Make the computer easier to see)
  • Domain policy disables the background changing
  • Corrupted TranscodedWallpaper.jpg
  • You are using Windows 7 Starter or Windows 7 Home Basic; these versions of Windows 7 do not support changing the desktop background picture
