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"
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
