    I had a picture of my dogs as my wallpaper... I turned on my computer, and now it shows up as a grey background. When I turn off my computer, the picture shows up for a few seconds before it goes black. I had the picture saved, but almost everything was removed from my hard drive this summer (stupid virus...)

    My question: Is there any way to get the picture back as the wallpaper?

    I use Windows XP

    Find the picture and set it again. Or dig through the windows folder. If you set it though IE it would show up as an explorer wallpaper.

    I tried... It was lost when the hard drive was almost wiped... the only place I can find it (by name) is in the wallpaper drop-down menu. There it shows up as grey.

    Sounds to me like the original file has either been lost or misplaced.
