    Windows 8 wallpaper change time bug

    Well... I dont know is this bug that is not recognized by M$ or what...

    I found this 'bug' in windows 7 that when I choose like 10 wallpapers and choose '12h change time' dont know why he changes wallpapers like 4 or 5 times a day...

    WITH WINDOWS 8 I SAW THE SAME! I now found some nice walls (like 20 of them) Im lazy to change every day so clicked random rotation with 'change picture every 1day' .... Aaaand It's the 3rd time that wallpaper changed today from morning!

    I mean wtf?!?? Windows clock is like 3x faster that our normal clock speed or what?..
    Its the same on 12h change- it changes wall like 6 times a day
    and on 6h change - it changes wall like dunno times.... MANY!

    How can I fix this bug?

    Im on 'legal' windows 8 Pro 64bit <- Clean installed from w7 with formatting so no trace from previous OS!
