*Hello Lewis,

Nope I am not using the collection of NASA space images, but I do not 
know actually where I got them from, or where
they are, for I looked in my home directory, in the wallpaper images 
that I have and none show what is being showed
on the main screen...
So I am at a lost to figure out where they are coming from, also when I 
go to system>preference> Appearance, they are not
even in that group either...

So how will I or how can I find out where they are located, and how to 
turn off that feature...???

I am also using Ultimate Edidtion 2.6 here...

Thanks for the reply...
