Bginfo not updating boot time

Besides supporting an array of built-in information fields, BGInfo can display registry values, file versions, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) query results, and more—as part of the system desktop background.

You also can customize the display's foreground and background colors and fonts, and because BGInfo generates a static desktop background and then exits, the tool doesn't consume system resources.

It automatically displays relevant information about a Windows computer on the desktop's background, such as the computer name, IP address, service pack version, and more.

You can edit any field as well as the font and background colors, and can place it in your startup folder so that it runs every boot, or even configure it to display as the background for the logon screen.

The tool automatically applies this configuration after 10 seconds unless you click somewhere in this window.

The window lets you shape the text and data fields that the tool prints on the desktop.
