Hi!

Check these locations for places that OS loads background images from:
%Systemroot%\Web\Wallpaper
%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Pictures (& sub-folders)
%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
%ProgramFiles%\Plus!\Themes (& sub-folders)

Look for things like "desktop.html" - hta files, etc.
Any questions let us know.
What operating system is this?

Hi!

Glad you got it fixed!

Check those locations anyway - just to make sure somethings not "left-over"  :)
