I just upgraded to W8 2 weeks ago and this is happening. the desktop gets replaced by some photos I have in a folder. Before there was some options in Control panel but know that Microsoft decided to make changes for the worse I can't get it right. Any ideas ?. yhanks

Try right clicking the desktop, select Personalise, select screen saver and in the dropdown menu select none. Apply, OK.
