Why does Windows 7 display login information on the top right of my screen?

mightyb October 4, 2011

In the school I work in we use Windows 7 as an operating system. This is the first year for us to use it. Every time I restart my computer, the login information (user name, IP address etc.) appears on top of the previous information on the upper right of my screen. It has done this so many times, I can’t see the information clearly. Is there a fix for this?

    You need to create a registry key and have the bginfo placed ONTOP of the background instead of changing it.

    uninstall Bginfo, delete the keys
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    reinstal BgInfo

    Hello, I would ask the system admin about it.  This is probably implemented throughout the school network.

    Is it possible you have some tool like BGInfo on the computer?

    Honestly, I haven't looked much into it but from what I know Windows only has an option to show build information [in the lower right] corner like it does in preview and beta versions.
