Desktop wallpaper disappears after restart!

I just got a new wallpaper, installed a program that required a restart, restarted, and my wallpaper is black! I can see the desktop icons, just not the wallpaper itself. I checked multiple times to see if my Windows is genuine, it is, the program didn't have anything to do with it, it was just fraps. I'm using Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. If anyone can help, it would be appreciated!

Re-apply the wallpaper - it may just be a one off. Otherwise, go to Control Panel > Ease of Access Centre > Make the computer easier to see.

In there, there's a tick box called Remove background images (where available). Just make sure that that box isn't ticked.

Okay, did that, and it works! Thanks!
