Background pic deleted but still there at reboot

Windows 2000 Pro. A picture appears after the log on screen and disappears when the desktop has loaded. I've deleted the picture from My Pictures, but it's still there at startup and briefly at shutdown. Can anyone tell me where else I can look for it to get rid of it please. (I've looked in Windows\Web\Wallpaper and it's not there.) Thanks.

Try setting a different pic and it may clear the cache.

Thanks Diodorus but I do have a different picture as background.


Once the desktop has finished loading, my selected background is there. This unwanted one only appears during start up, between the log on box and the desktop loading, and briefly on shut down.

Sorted - selected a different background picture several times, then selected 'none', now the unwanted one has gone.
