Question about Computers & Internet
On my XP when I wanted to change the wallpaper I got up Display Properties then clicked on the Desktop tab. I get an error message to send to Microsoft. Something has changed, I must now log in as a user, in the past I went right to my "normal" screen. Everything else seems to be normal. I run BLINK and did a virus scan, "No malware found". Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Ray
Check Display Properties, Screensaver tab, see if the "on resume, password protect" is checked. You've probably already checked on this, but...

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.
