I am using Windows 98SE and for some reason when I now boot up the computer, the wallpaper that I'm now using comes on as it is bootiing up, but just before it gets totally booted it changes to a light blue wallpaper. When I got to try and change the wallpaper to a different one and click apply and then okay, I still have the light blue wallpaper, or lack of wallpaper whatever the case is. Any ideas as to what my problem is and how to solve it?

I believe it is HTml, it's not a picture. It is called circles and I have to tile it to file the screen with it.

Right click on the desktop and see if you you have, under active desktop, a check in "view as a web page". You have to use this if the file is html or jpg. If it it a Jpeg, you should rename it to .jpg. There are other possiblities if you have used poledit and if you have installed Windows98 SE over Windows95.  Go here: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q231/1/81.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0 for the SE over Windows95 information.
