You don't need Display Settings or a degree in computers to set the wallpaper. Just right click an image in IE and select Set as
Wallpaper, press Ctrl+Shift+C in IRFanView to set the current image as centered wallpaper, run Marty List's SetWallPaper.exe,
Sysinternal's BGInfo, James Garton's Wallpaper Master, Nihuo's Crystal Wallpaper, Ivory's Panorama. There are as many was to assign
the desktop background as there are stars in the sky.
I'm not sure if there is a way to disable altering the wallpaper compeltely-although the concept does sound vaguely familiar-but
that's what you'll want to search on ("disable/prevent change/alter desktop wallpaper/background"). >> Stay informed about: Disabled Display Control Panel and yet...
