No matter what I change my desktop background to or how I go about changing it, it always stays blank. The selected background will appear shortly after startup and then it will change to a blue background for a moment and then it turns all white and stays that way. The icons show up allright. Has anyone had this problem? I have scanned my computer with anti-virus and anti-spyware and even paid for RegCur software to correct the problems found in my directory. Any thoughts?

Open your Control Panel/Display/Desktop tab/click on the Customize Desktop button.
Now click on the Web tab/uncheck the box next to My Current Home Page and any other listed web items. Make sure the box next to "Lock desktop items" is unchecked.
Apply and OK.

The "problems" you had (spyware?) added a white html page. When selected in web items, it covers the existing desktop.
Unchecking it, removes it from the desktop. If the file name is mentioned in Web Items, after disabling it, you can search for it on your hard drive and delete it.

Thanks, that did the trick. My desktop is now what I want it and not just all white. Now can you help me to get my internet connection right. Everytime I start up my computer, it auto dials 2222. Again, I go into control panel and change it but it never takes effect.

Good.

I've noticed that you reported the "dialing 2222" problem before in This Thread.
Did you find a new ISP?

What "problems" were found by RegCur ?

No, I have stayed with Netzero. When I ran RegCur, it found something like 1362 errors and supposedly fixed all of them but 6, which where all in the same catagory. I do not know what the errors were without going back and looking at the report.

Why don't you try running the Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner.
