I am configuring a new dedicated web server hosted by 1&1 and have run into a permissions issue with BGInfo. The box came with this preset and I have never used it before. When I log in with the standard admin account everything works fine. However when I log in with the user account that I set up for myself I get an error every time I log into the server. The error message states that I do not have permissions to view C:\ Windows\BGInfo.bmp. The user account I set up for myself is part of the administrators group, same as the standard admin account. I have checked all the permissions for the directory and for the file specifically and everything is in order the way I would expect it.

I have read several articles that go thru configuration steps for BGInfo but I have been unable to find the .exe file. I have also tried to locate the config.bgi file, but have not had any luck finding that file either.
