Under Win7 if user has selected slideshow for wallpaper then wallpaper monitor does not capture change event


Another bug found, specific to Win7. Win7 has a feature to use slideshow for wallpaper and user can choose multiple pictures to slide through as desktop wallpaper.
Windows does not change the path in registry for every picture change in this case and only update the content of picture file in its theme folder where it creates a copy of wallpaper. This does not cause a registry change event trigger and we do not get notified for a wallpaper change. To fix this now we are listening to file size change event as well as registry path change event.
