Can't delete BgInfo RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm a home user playing around with various ways to find my IP.  I downloaded BgInfo and it's hogging my home desktop, and I don't want it anymore.  It's not an app I can delete.  How to get rid of it?

    thanks.

  • When you run BGinfo it creates a bitmap under the user's temp folder and set it in the registry un der

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper

    Just delete that entry and your desktop will be back to the original one.

    After that it depends how did you actually run BGinfo.. do you execute it at every user's logon? via a logn script or a logon scheduled task?

    If you executed it just one time, simply delete the registry key and you are done.. if you have a logon script or scheduled task you need to delete them too.. otherwise at the next logon you will get it back..
