    I would like to know if anyone can recommend a good desktop program that you can load down pictures for your desktop background. I had webshots, but someone told me it has spyware on it. I not sure that's true. But I like to put different pictures on my desktop background and want something safe.

    You don't necessarily need a separate application in order to download desktop wallpapers. I simply have a sub-folder in the My Documents folder called wallpapers that I download images to. Many websites offer quality wallpapers; National Geographic is one example, islands.com has some; any digital image can be used as a wallpaper if it is of a sufficient resolution.

    The procedure for downloading wallpapers varies from site to site, but basically you just click on the image you want at the proper screen resolution, then right-click the image and choose save image as from the menu that pops up. Then just save it to the folder you have made up, and you'll always have a good supply of wallpapers. :)

    I have used Webshots for years, and I can assure you that it does not contain spyware.

    You really don't need any program. All I do is right click the saved pic I want on my desktop and choose " Set as desktop background".
    Works for me.
