A customer of mine has his girlfriend on his desktop and you see it briefly during bootup but then it disappears and he gets a uniform blue colour. Similarly you see her briefly when you shut down. So we know she is there but is hidden. When I go into desktop properties and try and change the wallpaper the controls are greyed out. He has admin rights - any ideas?

Try this.


Start regedit.
Navigate to:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\
In the right pane, look for a String Value with a path to a bitmap on your system--for instance: c:\windows\Circles.bmp -Delete the value.--Exit the Registry editor.
