    Desktop wallpaper program keeps reinstalling at every startup.

    Hi folks,
    I have had "Desktop Earth" wallpaper for a long time and I like it. Accidentally it got uninstalled (don't ask), no problem, I said, I went to website that featured it (codefromthe70s.net) downloaded it and reinstalled it. It works with one change from before. At each start up, the program re-installs. There does not seem to be any "preference" setting that I can get to, to try and set it to be permanent or automatic on start up. Not a big problem just an annoyance, can any of you fine folks help me with this small annoyance. I thank you for taking the time to even read my small problem and you guys have been great in the past, thanks and Happy Turkey Day. Stan
    PS I notice that I have not thanked folks in the past for all the help I have received, how do I do that so it does not look like I am an ungreatful boob for not thanking folks? Stan

    Look in the start up area by using a little program called What's in Startup. Perhaps somehow the installation file was added to Startup. You can disable or delete the entry easily.
