start with Windows ? If it does, is there anything in your MSCONFIG file that can be unticked ?

You could try installing again, then uninstall through add or remove in control panel,

hi joe and dadyassa - nothing in misconfigure file (i finally found it) as for uninstalling - im loathe to do that as my pc is only a few weeks old. the people who put the dashed logo on my screen helped me as much as they can, but no good yet.......but thank you both joy.

Try searching for all files - *.jpeg or - *.bmp to see if anything turns up. Something like " deskmates.bmp " or " deskmates.bmp ".

May sound obvious but have you tried hiliting it and delete.

Or right click on it to see if it gives any options.

If you reinstall it may give you option to uninstall it using the program.

hi joe tried the file search DeskMate was 'kind' enuf to help there, but to no avail

hi dadyassa been trying the right click wont budge ...thank you both though/ joy
