Thanks.
They used to work but it appears I've removed/disabled the Active Desktop.

Not sure if I want to change it back .. The way it is now nobody can change the wallpaper unless they know to convert the image first. I deleted all the bmp's on my system so only the current one shows up in display propertys.

Thanks For The Responce

Use the jpg as the background for an HTML page, then enable active desktop and use the HTML page for your desktop. I've got one now on my XP machine. :tazz:

I edited the reg and all's well. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer

"NoActiveDesktop"=dword:00000000

It was set to 1
