    The option to set a different wallpaper for each monitor is gone...wtf?
    Restart Windows.
    Edit: you've done that. Check if you got new graphic drivers and roll back.

    Run
    sfc /scannow
    from admin command prompt. If that doesn't help, I would to In place repair. It's relatively quick and leave all programs intact (as far as I know)

    Okay, so turns out this is a STUPID F*&%ING thing that happens when you connect all of your monitors to the same type of connection on your video card, or use adapters to make them work. I re-ran the wires for my GF's pc and BOOM! it works fine now. I have all 3 of my monitors using display port connections on mine so I have to rerun them and see if it works then.

    Will update when I'm done.

    The issue absolutely has to do with which adapters and cables you use to connect to your video card.

    Was there any drivers update at the time? Seems very strange to me that 2 different systems would show the same issue all by itself.

    Anyway, good that you found the culprit, and posted back. Hope backgrounds will behave from now on.
