    -right click a video and set to desktop background
    -set folder options to show hidden files
    -go to…
    C:\Users\#username#\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows DreamScene
    -there should be 2 image files of the dreamscene running (1 hidden/greyed)
    -set both files to “read only” & uncheck “hidden”
    -right click desktop > personalise > desktop background
    -under windows dreamscene, you should see both image files
    -make sure both are checked by clicking check boxes next to them
    -set Picture position: Fill
    -save changes

    NOTE: You can now set any dreamscene without text bug, however if you dont
    do the above procedure everytime you set a different video, you will briefly see the
    image of the first video you set at windows startup…therefore just delete both images
    that was set to “read only” and start procedure again on new video.

    Hope this helps
