can't change desktop picture...
 
right click> properties> desktop shows none selected as desktop, with no options or scroll bar available, background colors can be changed, just no picture can be added as a desktop...

would a virus or spyware do this...?

yes. id do some checks.
if you open up a picture and right click on it and click on "set as background" does that work?

What OS?
XP Pro?

Group policy can be set to not allow changes to those settings. Check GPedit.
