I assume you can still see the taskbar since you say you have the start button. IN that case, right click on the taskbar and select "Task Manager". When it comes up, see what applications are running in the Applications tab. It could be that you have some sort of viewer open. Ideally after a fresh reboot, nothing should show up in the Applications tab. If something is there, click on it and then press the End Task button and see if that does anything.
You can also try booting in the Safe mode and see if the photo is then gone. You'll need to check your user guide for how to get into the safe mode for your laptop since its different for different computers.
Are you able to right click on the photograph and if so, what options show up?
Can you send a screen shot of what shows up? To do this, press Print Screen key and then paste it into a new file in Photoshop.
Beyond that, I can't give you much more to try.
You can also find out what is loading at bootup by clicking Start, then Run, and typing in "MSCONFIG" and then look at the startup tab. But then you'll need to figure out which item may be the culprit.
