anyone any idea why my desktop picture wont stay the one i pic.
everytime i log off or boot up the pc the picture i want is seen for a second then another picture of a moon of all things apears. my chosen colour stays the same ,and I have checked it is on my default monitor .It is getting to be very anoying.
I am working of XP now and I never had this prob with win98.

Check under "scheduled tasks" to make sure that there isn't an option to rotate the wallpaper. Other than that, do you have a theme manager of some sort, such as Desktop Architect running?

the picture that displays on first boot up is different to the one that displays after bootup. This may still be the same in XP.

It depends on the setting for Display Web Content. Right-click and disable active desktop, display web content. Right-click again, select Properties, and choose the background picture you want on bootup.

Enable web content and select another picture to display when web content is shown.

Try taking out all pictures, and switching off Active Desktop. Then reboot.

Then reactivate the picture you really want, and it normally operates OK from then on.
