Startup Screen

After the Win Me startup screen I get another screen image when windows is loading. I was originally going through some files to set as background and one of these files comes up while windows is loading. How can I remove this file?
TIA Greg B

Dear GregB,
If you mean that after the windows me startup sreen, you got the image as your WALLPAPER, then This might help you:
Go to Start=>Run. Type in "win.ini". A notepad window would open with words inside (of course)!
Search for :
[Desktop]
Wallpaper=C:\WINDOWS\WEBSHOTS.BMP
TileWallpaper=0
WallpaperStyle=0
WallpaperOriginX=0
WallpaperOriginY=0
Pattern=(None)

For mine , it is like the above one. The C:\Windows\Webshots.bmp is the wallpaper which will show up after my welcome goes, and after loading the desktop, the desktop would change to another one. If you experince this, change that line to the path the wallpaper you want belong.
Hope this helps,
Jason TBK
