Evening guys,

I've posted a couple of logs, already but can't seem to get rid of
that desktop background that says "all that you do on computer"

I did read one thing that said you can delete the desktop.html file under windows\web
I did that, but the background is now this maddening flashing white, rather than
the original one.

I would really love to get rid of this garbage!

thanks a lot

David

Thanks for getting back to me - I found a way to clear it in the end.

went to desktop settings, and buried in one of the menus, in display properties,\ desktop items was a "web" tab. I deleted what was in there,
and it got rid of the bugger.

thanks a lot for your help and patience,

David
