desktop refresh

amd k6 500 running win 98. Lately I have been having problems with my desktop backgroud. Currently I am using a photo I took with digital camera. When I choose to use that as a background it says I need to use active desktop. Ok. The problem is that when I close out a full window, say explorer. The window closes very slow and in small horizontal bars (about 4 or 5 bars). After a while of use the background is then seperated into these same bars each being the same and seperate picture, and I usually end up restarting. Also another thing I noticed it that upon restart the background chosen in nonactive desktop shows up first and then the active desktop background (my picture) will show up near the end of startup. Hope somebody can follow this ? and give me their thoughts. By the way I was recently infected with a virus I believe it was klez something or other. It did seem to mess with some images, as some show up named "image x"
Thanks for any help.

Convert the photo to a .bmp format, then you won't have to
have active desktop hog resources to display it.
