Sounds like the new wallpaper is a JPG or something, which means it has to be displayed via the Active Desktop: thus, the "old" desktop shows for a few seconds before the new one shows up. The only way around this would be to convert the wallpaper you're using to a BMP (Windows BITMAP) using a graphics program, then use the BMP file for your wallpaper.

Like I said, it's because the Active Desktop takes a few seconds to start up after the machine boots (relying as it does on Internet Explorer), so you get the default desktop appearing briefly.

To be honest I don't see it's much of a problem--does it really matter much if you see the old wallpaper for a few seconds? It's not like you can use the machine for those seconds anyway, so you might as well go and make a coffee or something. <G>
