Control Panel Display Icon Won't open: Windows XP Professional

I recently used a photo from outlook express as a desktop wallpaper. The photo was installed under the desktop tab in NView desktop Manager. The problem now is that the display icon in the control panel won’t open: even though the desktop manager is disabled. The Os is Xp professional.
Methods used to solve the problem are as follows;
1. various registry changes
2. group policy editor

As circuitous a route as this may seem, try this:

-> Uninstall nView.
-> Reboot.
-> See if you can open your Display settings in the Control Panel, or by right-clicking your desktop.
---> If you can access it, you should be in the clear. Re-install nView if you'd like--although I personally have never seen a need for it.
---> If you still can't access it, reboot your machine, and keep mashing the F8 button on your keyboard. This should bring you to the boot menu. Boot into safe mode, and see if the Display settings will open.
---> If you couldn't access the Display settings in safe mode, and have access to your Windows installation media, insert it into your CD/DVD drive and reboot. Hopefully your BIOS settings know to check optical drives first in boot priority. Run the Windows Repair (or is it Recovery?) tool. See if this helps.

Best of luck!

It should be in the standard windows location in C:\Documents and Settings\theusername\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

if you used firefox to set as background might be under
C:\Documents and Settings\theusername\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
i looked at my driver for the nview desktop manager but i seem to not have it in my driver. usualy in documents and settings\username right click search. advanced.. search hidden. then search for *.bmp

How to download outlook express to send mails

You can't really download Outlook Express as it is part of Windows XP.
If it is not there, you can add it though the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. Select the Windows Components icon in the left-hand pane.

In Vista Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Mail, and in Windows 7 there is no email program, but you can download Windows Live Mail.
