Howdy! How was the weekend for you guys?
Ok, so here's where I'm at - the key to this mystery seems to lie here >> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
This is where I noticed a great deal of difference between registries plus some suspicious
named entries. I cleaned it out but it didn't do the trick. There is one thing that keeps getting re-written back in after I delete it though.
to keep popping back in. It has entries like: DisableRegistryTools, NoDispBackgroundPage, NoDispSettingsPage, RunLogonScriptSync,
etc... There are 14 things that either start with "Disable", "Hide" or "No". But only RunLogonScriptSync
has a (1) value. Something keeps
re-writing these back in. Just wondering if this is normal or something more.
The problem with my desktop not showing the wallpaper when icons are hidden is somewhat solved. I tried re-starting with icons hidden
and active desktop enabled and as soon as I logged in the wallpaper alone was visible with no icons in site!
- this was purely by
accident but it got me what I've been wanting. This will do for now.
Check out the pic attached.
If either of you have any comments about what I described above about the registry, please do so before we wrap things up. Again, I'm very
grateful with the time and help you have given me.
