    I was working on my uncle's machine yesterday and noticed he had
    a black background. Tried setting it and nothing happened. I
    started task manager and started killing all the garbage
    running. When I killed windows explorer the background I had
    set showed up. When I ran explorer again the background goes
    black again. This is repeatable after reboot. It appears to be
    per user, because I created a new user and it doesn't have this
    problem.

    He would just as soon tolerate the problem, but I'd really like
    to know what it could be. If it is a setting, where is it at?

    Any ideas?
