Desktop stretches picture despite being set to center?


Status:In Post-Production

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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
