:tazz: :) :)
My college have safegaurds inplace to prevent people having custom backgrounds, on the start program there is a "user control pannel" but you can only chose backgrounds from a list

Paint will not allow you to make something a background
I.E will not allow you to right click a image and select as a background, it will change to the image you want for a split sec but then turns back to your last selected pic from "thier" chosen list

When you click on my computer there is no drive C avalible for students,only access to floppy disk drives and a server where student work is kept. You cant go into tools>options either to effect hidden files

is there anyway arround this, i dont want bad pics of anything i just want a buffy or angel pic cos im mad bout em :P

So does anyone know how to get it to give me a background i want
:woot: :woot: :woot:

Hi there

Basically, there is no simple way round this at all. There may not even be a complex way round it either, besides which, I will not condone the 'hacking' of system files on a college computer. Sorry to be of so little help, but I think you will just have to put up with the boring old backgrounds that the college have provided.

Your only possible solution may be to approach the college's systems administrator & ask very nicely. I don't fancy your chances though!
