Oh thanks but another thing has happened.. my screen is totally black now and I'm a bit worried, I now feel like I should just go back and leave this stuff alone.

SinRival,

Go ahead and uninstall the other program, or do a system restore using a restore point dated before you installed it. This should be able to fix that.

Thanks im trying to download this feature but am unable to do so, all i get is :

miniman, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
  1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
  2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
Were am i going wrong ?

Miniman,

Are you clicking on the blue download button? Do you have cookies enabled?

Here's the download link here as well to see if it may work for you here instead.

Thanks, i was clicking the blue button, and have cookies enable (i think ) will try the 'new' link.

Thanks.

Thanks again, brilliant, tried the blue button again and it worked, installed, works great, didnt tick the picture box at first, i just double clicked picture, works ok now.

At first when i couldnt download, i googled and downloaded a Oceanis Change Background Windows 7 app didnt look like this one, but it did nothing but dissapear when i clicked to install it, wonder what that was ?

Great thing gone bad, not sure were from but every couple of minutes i get connected to the internet and connect to online advert sites, how can i kill this ?

Mininman,

It sounds like you may have just installed malware or a virus from that other program. I would recommend that you run a very thorough antivirus scan and with the free Malwarebytes.
