Help me get rid of these crazy pictures!

A co-worker in my office has these pictures of The Grinch in all of her windows explorer windows...

For instance, when she clicks"My Computer" there's a Grinch picture in the left-hand column... as a background image.

Grinch pictures show up in other spots as well.

How can we get rid of these things?  I've uninstalled any suspect software, and have played with the Themes in the display settings... no luck.  I'm baffled.

Any tips?

Thanks,
Steve

to do them all,  go to tools, folder options,  and in the middle where it says web view

click "use classic folders"

if you like the web view, you'll need to right click on the grinches nose (the background of the folder) and choose "customize this folder"     select the "remove customizations"  radio button and apply

Switching to classic works fine, but we'd like to keep web view and make the Grinch disappear.

I tried right-clicking on the background of the folder, but don't get any "customize this folder" option.  Hrmph.

Hi,

you won't get it if you are at the top level.  you need to go into your "C" drive.

  go one level down.  and give it another try..
