I am clueless on how to solve this, and will be the first to admit it.

I recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate on my four year old HP desktop PC.
The install went well enough, as did the restoration of documents to the four used profiles stored on the computer... the problem is when one of the user profiles decided to change its desktop theme of wallpaper. When that is done, the change carries to the other three accounts. I have Googled for a fix, but to no avail.

Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how was it fixed?

Only one account should be set as Admin. Set that wallpaper first. Then you can then do the others and they should stick.

Just fixed the problem... if it could be considered a problem. I discovered the Bing desltop that my son installed had an option to constantly change the wallpaper. Once that was disabled, all was fine. :)
