Hi guys i just bought a new netbook with windows 7 started installed just to realise you can not change the background image i can't believe the would restrict this simple customisation of the desktop. The issue is not with the netbook but with windows 7 starter edition. Good news i found a work around for it so to change the background image click on the c drive and navigate to \windows\web\wallpaper\windows\img0.jpg img0.jpg is the current image you can see on the desktop so you need to rename your desired picture with this same name and copy it over the original. Also make a copy of the default img0.jpg in case you need to revert back for some reason. I hope this helps any question feel free to ask.
