somewhere in my software I once spied a programme that took a snapshot of your desktop...at the time I thought it was an unusual place for such a programme and now I can't find it, I thought it was in Nero but it's not and it's annoying me ...does anyone have a clue please

if you mean take a image snapshot use the alt prt scr key then paste into your Fav' image editing software and save

do you know the name of program ?(that would help in the next step)
double click on my computer-> right click on the c:\ drive -> search and type in
first option,(if you know the name of it)type in..... <program name>.*
or
secound option,(if program name is unknown)type in..... *.exe This will search the entire c:\ drive for;

first option, any occurrence of the string specified in the <program name).*

second option, search for any files with extension .exe

then check the paths the search reveals and that should tell where on c:\ your lost program is installed then its a simple matter of right clicking on the program exe choose copy then go back to your desktop right click once more and choose paste shortcut

when you search *.exe you'll get like 100's if not thousands of results lol, just look around and fiddle lol
