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?

When I have either firefox browser or IE6 up and when I minimize my browser or exit out of it, my whole screen goes blank. Every thing from my desktop items and my taskbar disappears for a second or 2. The only thing on my desktop that doesn't go blank is my desktop picture.

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.

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

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?

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.

Not Rid Of Desktop File CAIR8RCN
I have this file (CAIR8RCN.) on my desktop which I can not get rid of. I don't know where it came from but it says "Error deleting file or folder - Cannot delete file: cannot read from source file or folder". I went in folder options and unchecked 'unhidden file extension' to see what kind of file it is but there is NO extension to this file. I also tried to delete the registered file type (it shows as blank extension) in Folder Options it wont let me do that either. Is there a way to get rid of this file? its just annoying sitting on my desktop. I've scanned with antivirus and spywares programs nothing helped.

Can't Get Rid Of Local Disk
when I open My Computer, it has a list a couple things;Hard Disk Drives
Drive C: (with a hard drive icon)Devices with Removable Storage.DVD/CD+RW Drive D:(with a CD player icon)Other.Local Disk L: (icon with a drive that has a red circle over it with a white question mark in the red circle)I attached an image of My Computer window. I can format it but it is pointless because it has 0 free used space. I thought if I did that maybe I would be able to erase it, but that didn't work either. It doesn't show up in Disk Manager either. I have tried using Partition Magic to delete it, but on reboot it gives me an error 626. I am using Windows XP Home Edition.

Can't Get Rid Of Virus / Caused Hard Drive Damage
At the end of january, I was on the web and all of the sudden firefox shut down.My desktop background had been replaced with a blue background with a black box in the middle telling me I had a virus and needed to by some software to get rid of it. I was unable to change the desktop back ground. Also, I noticed that after this incident, there was a particular folder on my second hard drive (I have two total) that would crash windows explorer everytime I tried to open, or even moved my mouse cursor over it in "my computer". This particular folder contains several gigabytes of music, video, and pictures most of which is not backed up.I have also tried accessing the folder with a 3rd party file explorer program, and it crashes that program as well.After running several different spyware programs, I was able to get the blue screen with black box removed from my desktop background, but it has been replaced with an error message saying my active desktop has been disabled (even though I can't turn it on or off in the options menu) and I am still unable to change the background.

Desktop Folders Disappeared 'tween Wiin98 'n' 2000
My daughter was running Win98, and had been saving to desktop folders (she thought). I know this isn't wise, didn't realise she didn't know that.Recently computer was acting strange and a "professional" was called in who copied everything on her hard drive to an external drive, cleaned it out and installed 2000. Then copied her stuff back to her drive. Now the numerous folders on her desktop have either disappeared or if opened show only gobbledegook.

Desktop Constantly ''refreshes''
I have a problem with my desktop. Every few seconds, my desktop seems to be ''refreshing''. My taskbar seems to disappear for a moment, then returning and reloading the taskbar icons, as if I just logged into windows. This is very annoying, because it's very hard to do anything now because it lags my computer every few seconds. I don't know why it's doing this, or when it started, it just seemed to happen over night. I scanned for viruses with PandaSoftware free online scan and removed some trojans. I also scanned for spyware with Ad-aware, Spyware Doctor, and also used Registry Mechanic and EasyCleaner to fix others problems I think are triggering the problem, but it didn't seem to fix it. Another thing is that sometimes goes away, especially when I'm doing any type of scan, but it can return at any second. It always appears after a reboot.
