When I purchased my old computer last year, I downloaded a picture from the internet and set it as my Background for the desktop. I plan on selling the computer, so I went into Display, and changed the Background to Windows Me. When the computer starts up, I still see the old picture for a few seconds. It eventually shows the Windows Me Background, but how can I stop it from showing the old picture for a few seconds at bootup and also shutdown.
The computer is running Windows Me obviously.
Thanks, Mike

I remember this happening to me back on 98 and Me, as i recall, goto your display settings and disable active desktop, restart and then re-enable active desktop, then you will see only the backround you have set...

Drew, It worked. I no longer see the old picture, only the new Background that I chose. Many thanks, Mike

You also might want to delete your old background picture, so the new owners dont see what it is :)
