    Background changed to black

    Hello everyone,

    I had this recent event with my computer, where my background had changed to black. All my desktop icons were still there, except the background picture itself changed to black, It happened when I was searching in google, when I finished I noticed the random change. I checked my background themes and found a unsaved theme of a black background, then deleted the picture and changed background. This is not a huge problem, except I would like to know what caused it.

    I run on Windows 8.1, on a ASUS Laptop.

    Thank you!

    EDIT: It seems to occur pretty often now, so I wandering if this is a glitch or bug.
