3. How do I uninstall awallpaper if I don't want it on my system anymore?
This will depend on how you chose yourwallpaper. If you used #1 above (right mouse click on image and set as wallpaper or set asbackground), you really don't have to uninstall. Anytime you choose another wallpaper fromyour browser this way, the new one will always replace the old one, so you never have morethen one image on your harddrive taking up space. If you still want to completely remove,you can go to your C Drive, go to Application Data/Microsoft/Internet Explorer and lookfor a file called "Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp" and delete it. You can findthe directory "Application Data/Microsoft/Internet Explorer " in your Windowsdirectory on Win 95/98/Me. It will be under "Documents and Settings" in XP.
If you used choice #2 above to save/set yourwallpaper, simply go to the folder where you saved the image and delete any file you wantuninstalled.
If you chose a wallpaper from an image in oneof our screensavers, simply go to Windows directory and find a file called"Webshots.bmp" and delete it. Or you can do a search on your hard drive forWebshots.bmp and delete. Keep in mind that when you choose images as wallpaper from ourscreensavers, each new choice will replace the old so it is not really necessary to deleteor uninstall as you will never have more then one image on your harddrive taking up space.More on choosing images from our screensavers as wallpaper can be found by
