Hi,
first post, so hello everybody, I have the archos 9 since a week.

I am using Aero styles with most 'effects' disabled. And I didn't like the blue-white standard background. I want it to be black or dark to save my eyes and battery.

I saw several 'hacks' or 'patches' to change the background, but don't like to install unknown stuff. So I just:

1) Open File explorer as Administrator, go to ...windows/web/wallpaper folder and change it ownership to yourself
2) Open the only file there with Paint, or similar.
3) Select all the photo and erase it, replace with another photo or whatever. (I just made the whole area black)
4) Save somewhere and close Paint
5) Copy the new pic and paste it into the Wallpaper folder. It will ask you an admin autorization, click yes.

Ready :)
