Try this workaround:

Copy the picture to: C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper

Now right-click the desktop => Properties => Desktop and see if it's listed there.

wilemdogs95, Go to the link below and nder the letter "W"--"Wallpaper - Desktop - Disable Changing" click on the words "Allow Wallpaper/Background Changes" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.
