    No problem, more curiosity than necessity.. I just looked in my W7 sample pictures & its not in there, either. Could it be a mystery ? :)

    How it got into Win98 I know not, because as Cobalt says, it is the standard XP background 'bliss.bmp' and is found at c:\windows\web\wallpaper. You probably have to have 'see hidden' or 'see system files' set on before you see it.

    I was refering to the wallpaper file . Not that exact wallpaper from win XP. Sorry for the miss understanding.

    Ok, its no biggie. I just thought it odd everybody see's it/saw it when they booted their XP up for the first time, yet it wasn't in my XP My Pictures sample picture folder. Thank you guru's for your kind input :)
