post a screenshot.

Press "Print Screen" on your keyboard, and paste the image into Paint. Resize the image to 640*480 or lower, and attach the image.

Two ways which you can fix this:

An executabe to remove the Common Tasks dialogue from the desktop:

or

A straight forward registry fix that does the same job (just need to download, and open to implement into registry):

ooh which one..? I'd go for number 2...much easier.

Whichever one you choose, remember to restart your PC for the changes to come into affect.

Hello,

Off the topic :freak: ...

It's a digitally rendered scenic wallpaper, made using Terragen and Photoshop...by a renderer named xoxroth who publishes his work at Wincustomize.

It was originally part of one of his wallpaper packs available to download here: http://www.wincustomize.com/ViewSkin...=25422&LibID=8.

I've tonnes of his wallpaper! I'm a complete wallpaper freak :drool: :freak: .
