    First of all, go to "Control Panel" and delete the "Black" Aero theme which causes the issue.Once done,restart your computer and move to the registry editor. You can do this by opening "Run(windows key+R)",typing "Regedit" in the text box and hitting the enter button on your keyboard.Then navigate to the following files:

    1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    2. Software
    3. Microsoft
    4. Windows
    5. CurrentVersion
    6. Policies
    7. ActiveDesktop
    8. Change the value of NoChangingWallPaper to “0”
    9. Finally Go back to personalization and change my favorite background.
