recently i was using WEBSHOTS for some desktop wallpaper. Nice but.....now when i go to add some new wallpaper or even try to use a screensaver, my desktop is cut in half and what appeare to be folder information (all in a grey block
with different things you cand do when you open a folder) it won't allow me to drag and drop anything on my desktop and my recycle bin icon (wastebasket) dissappeared. I've tried to get rid of everything associated with Webshots, But i'm still having a problem...Anyone out there that can help.I'd appreciate it
