Cannot set as desktop


If you are unable to change or display the wallpaper of your Windows 7 or Vista desktop, try this :
(1) Open Control Panel > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see.
viswalp.jpgEnsure that Remove background images (where available) is unchecked.
Save, Apply, Exit.
This should help !
(2) If it doesnt, try this:
Run regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
Then right click on Policies > New > KEY > name it as "ActiveDesktop".
Next in RHS, rt click > New > DWORD > name it as "NoChangingWallPaper" .
The DWORD value 1 will restrict change in desktop wallpaper. To allow change give it value as 0.
Reboot.
(3) If it still doesnt work, maybe your TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file has become corrupted.
Open explorer and type the following in the adress bar and hit Enter:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
Here, rename TranscodedWallpaper.jpg to TranscodedWallpaper.old.
Next, double-click slideshow.ini file to open it with Notepad. Empty its contents. That is, select all the text and delete it. Save the changes. Close explorer windows.
Hope something helps!

I switched to att.net for incredimail and am unable to send e-mai


If you are using windows mail you need to modify you account settings for the new mail server. You need to know your user name and password for your account. You will also need the Incoming Mail(POP3) and Outgoing Mail(SMTP) and if the server requires authentication. You will get this information from AT&T. Once you obtain this info you can modify the current account or add a new one using under the tools tab then accounts.
