Hi, I think this is could be due to the following: 1- The Windows Desktop Update component is installed and you are currently viewing your desktop as a Web page

2-Your desktop wallpaper contains a .jpg or .gif graphics file

3-Your desktop wallpaper is stretched To fix this problem here is what you need to do:

1-Click Start, point to Settings, and then double-click Display

2-Click the Web tab

3-Click the "View my Active Desktop as a web page" check box to clear it, and then click Apply

4-Click Yes when you receive the following prompt:

The wallpaper you selected can be shown on the desktop only if Active Desktop is enabled Do you want to enable it?

5-Click OK
