Re: Windows Help

You don't say what version of Windows you are running, but it sounds like you had the html page installed as "wallpaper". You deleted the source file for the "wallpaper", but Windows is still trying to load it. The result is a messed up desktop background.

If you are running Windows 95, 98, etc - go to Control Panel, double click on "Display", go to the "Background" tab, and see what you have selected as the background - try setting it to "none". You should get the plain windows blue-green background when the wallpaper is set to "none".

If you are running Windows XP, the procedure is about the same, except you go to "Appearance and Themes", then to "Change desktop background".
