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.

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?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
