Whenever I turn on my computer, after the Windows loading page there is another loading page of a picture (of a stupid car). This picture also appear when I turn off my computer. How do I remove/edit this page?

I took this from somewhere that helped me with the same problem before.
It has something to do with the registry.

Quoted :

Hive: HKEY_USERS
Key: Default\Control Panel\Desktop
Name: Wallpaper
Data Type: REG_SZ
Value: Full path to the bitmap

Edit the value or path. A reboot will show a change. Good luck. :thumbsup:

ps : always do a registry backup before editing something inside the registry.

What happens if you right click on this picture? If there are options you might want to try using Move on boot. There is a tutorial at the bottom of the download location.

If I understand correctly this car pic loads before the desktop?
If so it sounds like a bootskin. Have you changed your bootskin in the past perhaps with StarDock?

Well I don't know what a bootskin is but it sounds like you're on something. I didn't change the bootskin but the dude who builded my computer proably did. How would I get access to the bootskin?

OOps sorry about that last reply. I hit the add reply button on accident.
Anyway, I tried downloading the "move on boot" link and Mcafee reported it was a generic trojan!
Whats up with that?

I am not sure if you mean what I think you do but if you do, I have the same thing happening on my other computer that runs Win98SE. When windows loads, I have a background that loads just before the icons do and then right after the icons load, it changes to my usual background or wallpaper. In my case, the pic it shows on startup is one of my granddaughter that I had once accidently set to use as background and after I changed my wallpaper back in display properties, that pic still came up before the regular wallpaper would load. Nothing I did could get rid of it, but I didn't try to terribly hard to make it stop, as I liked seeing her smiling face for a minute before my usual background loaded. If yours is doing the same thing as mine, then maybe at one time the pic of that car was set to be used as background. Unless that is how you change the bootskin, I had never done anything regarding the bootskin.

The one thing I was going to try before I decided I didn't want to change it, was to open the pic I use as my background and right click on it and click on "Set as Desktop Background" to see if that would overwrite the previous time, since that is how I accdentally set the other pic before. You might want to give that a try.

I also always wondered if it had anything to do with me using Webshots, do you use that program?

Btw, there is no such thing as a "stupid car" :thumbsup:

Wow, after posting all this, I noticed the date on the original post, this person probably solved the problem a long time ago and is long gone. I have to start checking those dates before I reply, lol
