    Hi All
    I have been using the virtual desktop manager for sometime with no problems, but now all my wallpaper seletions wont work and I just get the default colour. I have tried remove reinstall but to no avail, any ideas?

    Cheers
    Roy

    The VDM appears to be subject to corruption , usually from third party apps such as Style XP etc.
    I dont know the cause but also loading some wallpaper changes to one of the 4 desktops causes a single colur lockup across the bottom right of the screen or even across the wholescreen.
    Also the same image appears on all 4 screens, although separate jpgs have been selected.
    Try either 2 or 3 log off/log ons, or clicking screens 1 - 4 alternately to reset.

    Did you install a third party image editing progamme, when you had your problem?

    Ropeyy ... do you have an nVidia card?

    If so, you can use the built-in desktop manager included with the Detonator drivers.
