A large darkblue square has appeared on my dektop and will not go away.
It takes up twothirds of the desktop and and features a monthly calendar
in the righthand topcorner. Also in the topcorner is shown a time 17:57
This time does not change. The icons sit on top of this image.
I use no screensavers.
I have tried 3 different startup programs to find out if there is some program
that loads this image but no luck.
I am on windows 7 and the task manager does not show any unusual program.
I am baffled!

Edit: Moved topic from Windows Startup Programs Database to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

It sounds like your desktop wallpaper has changed. Have you tried changing it back to default?
