I got a picture stuck on my desktop and cant get rid of it. I've messed around in the display properties and still cant get rid of it. It shows in front of the background, but doesn't have any properties of it's own. Thanks for any help.

Check the registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop on the left pane see what path "Wallpaper" has. If it has the path of the one you want to get rid of, modify it and put the path of the one that you want.

Correction: I meant on the right pane after highlghting "Desktop", not left pane.

I suggest Move On Boot. This program will delete the file on the next boot up.
Sometimes the OS thinks a file is running when it really isn't and of course when
the file is in use it can't be deleted. Try That program and see if that helps.
Let us know your outcome......

No Spyware in this program, It's totally free.
