Webshots/nView clash?

Having owned a GeForce 6200 videocard for some time now, I was looking through the bundled software and discovered the nView desktop utility. To my delight, it gave me the option to make open folders in Windows XP transperant, allowing my desktop wallpaper to take away some of the 'harshness' of XPs white colour scheme. Unfortunately, sometime later I found that when I hit the desktop button on my quick launch toolbar, there was a big ugly darkened blotch on my wallpaper, and my taskbar disappeared only to reappear when I moved my mouse over where it had previously been located . After fiddled around for a while trying to fix the problem, I found that I didnt have the same problem when I manually minimsed my open programs one by one.

For now I have disabled nView but I was wondering, has anyone here encountered this problem before, and if so do you know how to fix it? I have webshots Desktop enabled so that my wallpaper automatically cycles every 15 minutes, and I think the problem is some kind of clash between it and nView. Other background applications include Winamp, Steam, Spybot S&D and Vet Antivirus.

Thanks for your time,
