How to remove BGInfo from desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just ran BGInfo for the first time on my WinXP computer.  The information is now plastered over my entire desktop screen and I see no way to remove it.  lI tried putting the BGInfo icon in the toolbar but that didn't give me a solution.  And I tried running /timer but that didn't do anything noticeable.  Short of rebooting the computer, is there a way to remove this information overlay from my desktop screen?

  • I just rebooted my computer and when it came back up the BgInfo information list was still dominating my desktop screen.  I looked in Control Panel/add-remove programs and it wasn't listed.  I ran Autoruns and there was nothing with the BgInfo name.  I looked at the list of processes in Process Explorer, nothing there.

    I'm not sure where to look next...any suggestions?

  • As already stated above, you have to clear everything in the configuration windows and click apply..

    Easier than everything else..
