BGINFO.EXE

    Question

  • SOLVED!

    I foolishly installed BGINFO.EXE from System Internals. I would like to get rid of it, but the only info provided is this:

    To uninstall, delete BGINFO.EXE and reset your system's wallpaper using Windows' Desktop Properties dialog.

    I am using Win7 Pro (x64) and "Windows' Desktop Properties" is no longer available. I would like to get rid of it, but how?

  • You can do is to delete the BGINFO.exe and if you cant change you wallpaper, try to right click on a picture and click on "set as background".

  • Just delete the file, then set your wallpaper however you normally would: right-clicking your desktop and choosing Personalize.

  • No Need to Uninstall anything, Just Open an Image of your Choice, Right Click on it and click " Set as Background". The info will be removed. After doing that Please Delete the bginfo.exe file....

    you are free :)

    Do you have the option on to see Hidden files and folders?  If BGINFO has the Hidden attribute on, that may be why you can't see it.  In Win 7, run Windows Explorer and then select Tools->Folder Options.  Then from the View tab make sure "Show Hidden files, folders and drives" is selected.  Then try looking for BGINFO again.
