    When I set a picture as background in XP, and I set it to center or tile, it shows it centered or tiled in the preview window, but applying it occurs as if I've set it to stretch, no matter what.

    This is a new issue, it never used to happen, and I am familiar with the desktop display settings, so I'm not doing anything 'wrong'. It's as simple as setting it to center and having it display as stretched.

    Has anyone experienced this before or knows why it might be happening?

    If you have done so already, disable all startup programs in msconfig then see if desktop changes.

    If OK then enable programs one at a time until you find your problem program.
