  1. Has anyone heard of this. Windows XP keeps losing desktop wallpaper. I will choose a wallpaper. then after awhile the wallpaper will not display and I have to go back and reselect the wallpaper. This happens with any I choose and not just this one.
    Also when XP loses the wallpaper I have a little red X with a white background in the upper left hand corner simular to when a graphic's is not found on a web page. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    It sounds like you have Active Desktop enabled, but I didn't think that was an option in XP. I'll look around.
