silly computer problem

Recommended Posts

Not cool at all. Thanks Rebecca, but that didn't work either! All that did was change the color block behind the text to something else.

 

I am emailing my IT department. It might be silly, but whatever, i am on this computer more then I am doig anything else in this world, so it shouldn't be so annoying!

Thanks, Joanne, I tried that one as well, but I don't see the option for "enable web content on desktop".

 

I will wait to see if you can figure it out at home before asking my IT. They aren't very quick getting back to us anyway...

 

Thanks everyone for your suggestions!!!

That sucks Carly. I wonder what the hell happened? Hope you figure it out soon, sounds annoying.

 

Have you tried changing the background image completely?

Lucky for you I just started my IT program and the course I'm doing right now SHOULD be called "The dumbest shit you never cared about for Windows XP" lol You have Active Desktop enabled by the looks of things. If you right click, go to properties, and then go into the Desktop tab and Customize desktop then click on web and uncheck whatever is checked off there, then that SHOULD cure it. If not, then I'll ask my prof, he'll know ^_^

How about this... go to control panel -> display -> themes -> select windows xp from the list... then you have to go back to change your desktop background (and if you want orange for the background behind the pic just change the color there). Changing the theme seems to erase all changes.

Also thanks to everyone else that tried to help me! I have no clue how I changed that setting, but my desktop is much prettier now.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
