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.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
