I have a computer that already had Webshots installed on it. I want to send the computer to my sister, and I think she would enjoy seeing some of the photos on it, but generally I think she, like I, would prefer a less vibrand screen background. But when I got to msconfig and unclick the check mark for Webshots, and then boot up again, the check mark reappears and Webshots again furnishes the screen background. Is there a way I can control Webshots so that it works only when I turn it on myself? grandpaw

I don't know the program, but often somewhere in the options there's a box 'start Webshots when Windows starts' or something similar you can uncheck.

Have you looked there already?

Good luck,

grandpaw,

I think Webshots has to be in your task bar to work, to disable it try this, right click the webshots Icon, select settings,tray, then deselect" run webshots on my task bar tray"
You can also select your standard theme or wallpaper by rightclicking desktop,properties,background, and choosing a standard setting, ...hope this helps...Rhett
