    Daughter No.2 has downloaded an animated avatar onto my desktop - looks cute, but gets in yer face after a while. Well, I've tried all sorts to get rid of it - but no joy. Any ideas? :(

    Is it a program which is running at startup? If so try looking for it in your startup folder of your start menu, or try looking for it under the startup tab using msconfig (Start => run => type msconfig)

    Is it an animated .gif displayed there as desktop element?
    Right click on the desktop - properties - Desktop tab - Customize desktop - Web tab - remove the item from the list if it is there.
