    default lock screen imageflashes before my selected image


    This is really annoying, but I set my lock screen image as my own image and every time I boot up my computer or log in/log out, the default lock screen image flashes right before my image. It is a real eye-sore.

    I found the image in the windows folders, it is: C:\Windows\Web\Screen\img100.jpg. Deleting or modifying the image does not prevent it from still flashing there before I log in.

    I am running win 8.1 with a Solid State Drive. The SSD is really fast, I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

    Anyone else run into this problem and maybe have a solution?

    Thanks

    Not sure what you mean. Should I delete the entire folder? I wonder if that may screw anything else up in windows 8 though. I tried deleting just that first image but that didn't seem to work.

    I deleted the folder but it still didn't solve the problem. I wonder if there is another place the image is stored...

    Annoying problem. Tried everything. But I fixed it.

    Had to upgrade to windows 8 pro from home. Then I used GPEDIT to change the default lockscreen image and it fixed everything.
