The title and subject are pretty self explanatory. I have a little problem that poses no real threat but irritates me somewhat.

I share a computer with others, so there's multiple users. For about 2 months now everytime you start up the computer my background pops up in between the Windows XP logo with the blue load bar and the log in screen. I am a bit of a perfectionist so when this happens it's kind of annoying. Anyone know how to fix this up?

Thanks.

Sometimes XP saves the last used wallpaper and it will flash briefly at boot and shutdown. There is a registry key that is holding this info. Quick fix- change your wallpaper to blank, reboot, then put your wallpaper back again. At least the other users will only see the flash of blank instead of your personal picture.
