    Spotlight help needed please

    I'm baffled as usual.

    The "do you like what you see message" only shows a blue screen where the picture should be, all the text is there but no picture. The strange thing is that the picture shows in the preview section where you turn the feature on or off.

    All was fine until a software update I think.
    Its still works on the desk top PC. I even tried a Bling app I think is was, that was mean to change the picture and even that came up with an error message saying it could not set it.
    I wonder what could be blocking it.
    Thanks for any help.

    I'm looking for same solution. In my case, setting "Show lock screen picture in background on sign-in screen" to OFF, the windows spotlight shows up as usual with the text. Setting it to ON, I get the blue blank screen with the text. Try setting on yours to OFF and see if spotlight shows up.

    Thanks Sugoi
    Setting that to off as you suggested fixed it.
    Its working fine now.
    Your a genius

    It's only a temp work around, I don't know what happened but something got screwed up and I hope it gets fixed in the future, though I'm not holding my breath. I have multiple logins on the PC, and only 1 works as expected. The others show this "buggy" behavior. I haven't been able to trace it down and have no theories because it's not consistent across my other PCs and user accounts.
