JLR Pathfinder

Nelson Manager Huntington Beach, California Posted   Latest   Edited  

Hello All,

I have come to find out that when you install JLR Pathfinder on a PC, it changes your background image to the one below. I have tried changing the background as you normally would but it doesnt apply. Has anyone dealt with this before?

Just photoshop some kidney grilles on them. It'll be fine.

It’s part of pathfinder. I found by uninstalling it my desktop went back. It’s all about control.

SDD did the same thing. Once it was uninstalled it went back to normal.

It's should be a default in the windows registry. I'm not sure how it set up the software, but if you still have admin rights it should be able to be removed from the registry.

Update: I was able to remove the wallpaper and now its just a black background. Only issue is that i can't replace the wallpaper with something that i want. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers. Head over to - C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\ - Find the file called "TranscodedWallpaper" and remove it from the folder. - Restart the PC Note: This was for…

Hi Nelson: I'm curious what would happen if you rename a bmp (I'm assuming it is a bmp) file that you want to "TranscodedWallpaper" and place it in the folder. Guido

Guido, That is not an image file. I don't know what it is since I haven't tried locating something to open it but whatever he did broke the background system, it didn't just remove the image. I'm sure I could figure it out if it was important enough but I have a lot of other things on the to do list ahead of it.

Can you access the Group Policy? If it's simple disable Check Group Policy, otherwise it's in regedit. Click Start, click Run, and then type gpedit​.​msc Under Local Computer Policy, expand User Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Desktop, and then click Active Desktop. Double-click Active Desktop Wallpaper. See if enabled and disable it.
