What is BGinfo

The genuine Bginfo.exe file is a software component of Sysinternals BGInfo by Microsoft.
Bginfo.exe is an executable file that runs Sysinternals BGInfo, a tool that let users display system information on the desktop background. This is not a critical Windows component and should be removed if known to cause problems. BGInfo is a simple utility program for Windows that automatically displays currently system status and important information about the computer directly on the desktop background.

 

If you are having a problem with BGinfo displaying the incorrect information it is because the Registry Keys have not been updated.

For this specific issue you will need to update the key in the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ActiveComputerName\ComputerName
