I use to get a new picture daily just before my pin number was required. Since about seven days ago, it has been the same picture. I ran sfc/scannow and everything s fine. Any Ideas? Thanks

It probably just made it take notice of your setting.
There are lots of things in windows that get fixed by odd things:
  • reinstalling programs
  • turning pc off & on again
  • turning things off and then on again.
these are the more common. There are some really bizarre solutions out there.

right click desktop
choose personalise
click lock screen choices, what is it set to? Sideshow? Spotlight or picture?
Slideshow changes images on a roster you can set
Spotlight downloads a new picture to use each day I think
Picture: This stays same picture until you change it

Well, I am clueless. All I did was turn the switch off and then on, and now the picture changes daily Ooooh! The mysteries of computers. Thanks.
