Windows 7 Enterprise - Can't change background image
  

Hello to all,
I don't have any problem with Windows 7 until I set my desktop background to bingimages. Using this background pictures shuffle automatically. Today when I tried to set one picture on my computer as background, I unable to do this. I only able to change it to a solid color. I tried various method, but none of them worked out. I don't know why I can't change background image in Windows 7 Enterprise? Anyone else having the same problem.
Please help me to fix this problem. Thank you.

If you want to go the registry key, then first you need to click on start and then click run. Once you do this, a small window will pop up. Type in 'regedit' without the quotes. This will bring up your registry. Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and click on it accordingly to expand it to get to its desired key.
