I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that the desktop background goes blank
at regular time intervals.
I just meant that the desktop background goes black *frequently*. It
seems to happen when I'm doing something major like installing a new
application or something.
I've done some Google searches, and it seems that other users of Vista
have reported a similar problem--but so far, none of the proposed fixes
Perhaps there's something in Service Pack 2 that will fix this. I've
still got only SP1.
