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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
