Problem with Win 7 desktop themes

    I'm finding that when I choose my desktop themes where the background
    picture rotates from time to time, that after some time the background
    stops switching. I go into the background configuration and it shows
    only one picture selected out of the dozen in the theme pack. Not sure
    what's causing this. Anybody seen it?

    Well, at least I'm not alone.

    I've noticed that if I change any one part of a theme, then it reverts to an
    Unsaved Theme, sometimes this will also only include the last picture shown
    on the desktop. Perhaps you modified something included with the theme and
    Windows decided to make it a "new" Unsaved Theme? Right-click, then select
    Personalize to see if you have an Unsaved Theme selected.

    I did notice the "Unsaved Theme", and that's how I figured something
    must've changed. But I don't recall making any changes to my themes at
    all during those times.

    I have seen how even changing the "change picture" time in the theme
    causes it to become an unsaved theme, so I would've made those kinds of
    changes, and then promptly saved them. So if changes needed to me made,
    then I would've consciously changed and saved them everytime.
