What version of windows do you have? You might have a setting in your registry that is disabling changing desktop background. Is it a personal computer or a work computer?

Windows 7 Starter edition comes with one desktop background, which can't be changed or customized. Please see this link for details.
To change the desktop background
Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Desktop Background.
Click the picture or color you want for your desktop background.
If the picture you want to use is not in the list of desktop background pictures, click the Picture location down arrow to view other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background and appear in the list of desktop backgrounds.
Look for pictures in other locations on your computer
Under How should the picture be positioned, choose to have the picture fit the screen, tile, or be centered on the screen, and then click OK.
If you choose to have a centered picture as your desktop background, you can also have a color background to frame your picture. Under How should the picture be positioned, click Change background color, click a color, and then click OK.
