Ramesh, you've made my day!!! Thank you so much. I finally found the time
to get back to work on this and thanks to you, I can now put my pictures on
the desktop.

The web site you recommended fixed my problem. The first two commands did
not work. It gave a third one to try if the other two failed..........AND IT
WORKED!!!! I've been e-mailing with Microsoft and two of their "techies"
have been unable to help me???

I'm forever grateful.................hope this has also helped others.
