Question about Nvidia GeForce 6600 Graphic Card
I recently used a photo from outlook express as a desktop wallpaper. The photo was installed under the desktop tab in NView desktop Manager. The problem now is that the display icon in the control panel won’t open: even though the desktop manager is disabled. The Os is Xp professional.
Methods used to solve the problem are as follows;
1. various registry changes
2. group policy editor
Restart your computer with the original Windows disk in the drive. Choose to repair Windows, this will overwrite Windows and fill in any missing application data that happened when you used the photo to put on your desktop. The picture it seems either had an extra extension attached to it or was the wrong format for Windows to recognize.

I have WinXp pro. I don't have NView. I take it that is another program? If it is, that's what probably screwed you up in the first place.
I see you have tried a lot of things. Did you go back to a previous "restore point" as suggested? What drivers are you trying to re-install? the Display?
1.Go to Control Panel> Add/remove> look for NView > if its there, remove it > reboot (hard boot -shut down and restart) this gets rid of the program.
2. Try opening the Display again but try "right clicking" on the desktop this time > properties. Window should open up and now you have access to the "display" settings.
3. You should also be able to open "display" from the control panel.
Tell me if this helps you.

As circuitous a route as this may seem, try this:
-> Uninstall nView.
-> See if you can open your Display settings in the Control Panel, or by right-clicking your desktop.
---> If you can access it, you should be in the clear. Re-install nView if you'd like--although I personally have never seen a need for it.
---> If you still can't access it, reboot your machine, and keep mashing the F8 button on your keyboard. This should bring you to the boot menu. Boot into safe mode, and see if the Display settings will open.
---> If you couldn't access the Display settings in safe mode, and have access to your Windows installation media, insert it into your CD/DVD drive and reboot. Hopefully your BIOS settings know to check optical drives first in boot priority. Run the Windows Repair (or is it Recovery?) tool. See if this helps.
Best of luck!

You can right click on the picture itself and select "set as Desktop background"
Click on the Start menu button. Then click on Settings and then on Control Panel.
Double-click on the Display icon or text link. This will open a window named Display Properties.
Click on Background if that tab is not selected. Click on one of the items that appear in the box labeled Wallpaper.
Inspect the preview that appears above the Wallpaper menubox. Use the Display menu to the right to experiment with tiling, stretching or centering the picture that you are previewing.
Click on Browse to use an image stored elsewhere on your hard drive. Locate the image and click Open.
Click OK to change your background, or wallpaper. Click Cancel if you decide to maintain your current settings.
