Hi, sounds like your operating system has encountered a problem. You can restore your system to a previous time before the problem occured, by booting into safe mode. To do this press the ESC or Del key during initial boot fase and select boot in safe mode. If this does not work your other option could be to do a system restore, by placing your operating system into the cd driver.

Hiding Desktop Icons in Windows XPWith a good choice of wallpaper, your computer desktop can add an attractive, even artistic, element to your home or office. Eye-catching desktop wallpaper can be as decorative in its way as a painting or other wall hanging.



If you value the aesthetic potential of your desktop, you might like to enhance it even further by hiding the desktop icons.

Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.

I wanna add a wallpaper but everytime i click a picture and add as desktop wallpaper it doesnt show and it remains as windows wallpaper. it doesnt change


You have an infected computer.
Use an antivirus, then an antispyware, to get rid of this problem.
Its common that an infection makes the computer behave in a strange way.
When your computer is back to normal, check this web site www.labellpcsolutions.com
You won't have this or other problems again.
Good luck.
