Default 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...?

What OS?
XP Pro?

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