Desktop Wallpaper changes exactly five minutes after system start boot-up
Posted on 2005-03-06
I have a laptop running windows XP Home edition with Service pack 2. I want to run the Aquatic background on the desktop, the one with the scuba diver in the the back. Anyway, I boot the computer up and everything works fine. After exactly five minutes I hear a strange sound effect, the cursor hour glasses for a second and the wallpaper turns to the blank blue background. I can change the wallpaper back to the way I want it and it will stay, until of course I reboot and it does the same thing, here is what I've tried:
I took everything out of startup. I went into the registry and deleted everything out of:
I ran MSconfig and unchecked everything. I ran a trendmicro virus scan and I installed Microsoft Antispyware and both came up clean. It is completely up to date with Windows Update.
I've also removed everything in scheduled maintenance.
The computer used to have Windows ME with Plus and it didn't start doing this until I upgraded to Windows XP.
I know somebody is going to tell me to get a hijack log, I don't know where to get the program, I suppose I'll search. If anybody has any ideas, please let me know.
