    My computer adopts its wallpaper from the one next to it without having the image downloaded


    This has been going on for a good while now. Me and my roommate have our computers next to each other on the same table. I have always had the same image as my wallpaper but every time my roommate changes their wallpaper, a few days later the wallpaper on my computer will magically become the same as theirs. I always change it back to my own but I've been wondering how this could even be possible. The images are not present on my computer anywhere and their computer is not connected to mine in anyway. Both are connected to the same router via Ethernet, that's all.

    :)

  3. Wallpaper and lockscreen images are automatically changed

    Problems is as described: I set my wallpaper to an image of my preference and when the computer is connected to the internet, the wallpaper changes to a different landscape picture after a while, without my consent or desire for it to do so.

    Facts, before someone asks:

    • I don't have Bing background installed or whatever it is called, at least not that I know (I searched)
    • Wallpaper is not set to do a slideshow and the images that show up are not mine
    • I haven't personally installed any software that would do any of this
    • Computer is protected by a security suite (ESET Smart Security, updated and up to date) and is clean

    I'm a relatively tech-savvy person and I'm only here because I haven't been able to solve this, not even by googling, not even going to other forums, nothing. I don't know where this comes from, I've investigated all other possibilities and I still don't
    know what is causing my background to change. My last suspicion is that Windows downloaded something or brought something in an update that is doing this.

    Oh, and I have a W10 laptop (x64) and the problem doesn't happen there.
