    How come desktop background changes upon starting?

    I have a slideshow that I only want to change manually (through the right click desktop menu).
    I have it set to 1 day in personalization and paused in power options.

    Yet every time I start the system, it changes the background after a few seconds when everything loads?

    I am just guessing but I would bet the "pause" setting is not saved when the program shuts down at system shutdown.
    I set wallpaper manually with Irfanview. So I am not familiar with slidshow. Perhaps a 3rd party freeware would give more control.
