After my last computer tech left, I found out that when starting up the bench system an added picture pops up just after the "Microsft Windows 98" logo picture. Normally it would not be a problem except that this extra picture is of a nude woman. Not the type of thing I want customers to see, and inappropriate sence my new tech is female. I would like to find this file to see when and who put it there but more importantly so I can remove it. I did a find files or folders search for .jpe and .gif but did not find it there. I really could use some help with this. Also I'm unfamilar with XP, is there a "find files or folders" equivalant other than search. I tried that but it did not work for me.

Probably a background picture and the Active Desktop is enabled. Disable ACtive Desktop, change the background PIC, re-enable the active desktop again, or leave if off. This is all under Display properties. Check this is Safe Mode too, if you're unsure - ie the background pic.

Thank you Triple 6! I don'tknow how I missed it, other than it was labled as internet explorer wallpaper. And I had not even concidered turning off active desktop. By the way it turned out to be a paint file bit map image. THanks Again!
