  1. Desktop background and lock screen changes with an image I do not know of


    My desktop background isn't set to slideshow, but for some reason it changes my preferred background to the the image below. My lock screen is set to the same picture as well despite me setting it before to Windows Spotlight slideshow. I've actually experienced this issue twice or thrice before and shrugged it off at first by simply changing back my previous Personalization settings, but for some time it changes back to that same image. I noticed that it usually happens after a recent Windows update, if ever that proves to be relevant.

    That image isn't anywhere to be found in laptop and don't remember downloading it. I tried reverse-searching the image at Google Images but didn't get any useful information aside from references to an artist. I'm concerned it might be tied to some security-related issues so I decided to ask this community for an explanation of this behavior. Any help is very much appreciated.
