Are you on a Windows 2000/2003 server network? or is your laptop a stand-alone?

Actually you have to fix this in policies
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
System]

You should find under this key 2 values
Wallpaper and Wallpaper style...
if these are there then you cannot change the background unless you remove both those values

(If this info can hurt network Admins work...please remove my post, thx)

I forgot...you might not be able to change the registry...so it might not work
