Can't Get Rid Of The Picture From Desktop

I have a question here concerning a picture on my desktop.I came across a picture on the net liked it and clicked on it to "set as background" well, it had to stretch it too much to make it fit, and I didn't like it, so I deleted it then I right clicked on the same picture again "set as desktop item" (and I don't know what that means, but I thought I would find out by clicking on it.then it asked me if I wanted to set it as an ACTIVE desktop, and I again said yes.Okay the picture is fine...the size is good, but I can't get rid of the picture it stays on my desktop ALL the time.Is there a way to delete this picture so that it isn't on my desktop anymore?

Getting Blank Desktop And Icons Without Picture?
My desktop on my computer is blank. It still has the icons on it, but there is no picture, only white.I went to the Windows XP Control Panel and made sure that a theme was selected and it was. When the computer reboots, the picture will be on the desktop momentarily, but then it will turn white.The only thing unusual that happened today was some viruses being stopped by my McAfee. After the viruses were blocked, the desktop turned white All programs work and I've run a utility check that Dell provides with the laptop.

Can't Change Desktop Picture - Actually Select Image
For some unknown reason, I can't change my desktop picture. When I go into the Display Settings, everything in the Desktop tab is grayed out. I can still use the customize desktop button and the position drop-box, but I can't acutally select an image.

I've tried going through the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem , but none of this helped. I had at one stage lost all the tabs, but I managed to retrieve them through the registry. It's not urgent that I get the desktop tab working, it's just really annoying.

Picture As Wallpaper Color Around Words / Under Icons Doesn't Blend In With Picture / Stays Solid Color
This may seem trivial, but it's bugging me. I have a windows XP and i have the windows classic theme. Every time I put a picture as my wallpaper the color around the words under my icons doesn't blend in with the picture but stays a solid color, so there's like little boxes of blue of white. How do I make those icon words blend in with the picture?

Get Rid Of My Welcome Screen With The Big Picture
I'm not a computer wizard and I did something screwy, not that I know what it was. So if you can answer me, 1st of all thank you, and second of all you have to speak to me like I'm a child with this computer stuff. The problem is that I wanted to get rid of my Welcome screen with the big picture and my whole name splashed a cross it. Man, I wish I had it back. Now I get an instant log on error once windows loads which has a Yellow Yield sign and says that I can't log on and I should check if I have the right domain and User Name, then I can type in the password

Help With Picture And Fax Viewer
I've had this networked drive for photos going great for months. When I use the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, I can rotate clockwise/counter-clockwise and auto save on the spot.any ideas why? The properties an ALL jpg's are not read-only, File Sharing is still set to "allow network users to change files" - are there advanced sharing properties I should look into or do you think this is just another annoying MS bug? Very frustrating.

Print Text And Picture
HP psc 2410 photosmart all-in-one printer. Whats happening is it's not printing the text of documents but if i insert a picture it will print that with no problems, even printing from the internet it will only print pictures. I scanned something that was only words and it printed that. I thought maybe it was the black ink cartrige so i put a new one in and it still isn't printing. If i put the words in a different colour it will print them just not in black.

Disable Picture - Fax Viewer
By default, Windows XP opens all picture files (gif,jpg,...) with the included Windows Picture and Fax Viewer no matter what other picture viewers you have installed. To disable the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, unregister shimgvw.dll. This can be done from command prompt:regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll(Additional note: unregistering shimgvw.dll will also disable thumbnail view in Explorer and may cause problems changing user account and desktop background pictures. To reenable Picture and Fax viewer again type:  regsvr32 shimgvw.dll)
