This happens when you have Windows Starter Edition. The Aero perks and other features are not available in that edition. windows.microsoft.com/.../compare

From MS-- You can't change desktop backgrounds (wallpapers) or themes on PCs running Windows 7 Starter. You can personalize your PC in other ways—by changing the color of your windows, for example, or adding desktop gadgets. If you want to customize your PC's look with new themes and wallpapers, you'll need to upgrade to another edition of Windows 7.

Can't change the Background Wallpaper in Windows 7

This has worked for some people.  Maybe it will work for you.

Click the Start button and type the follow command in the search box and hit enter. 
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Theme

Now delete the file TranscodedWallpaper.jpg


If that doesn't work, try this.

Click the Start button and type the follow command in the search box and hit enter. 
Ease of Access
 
Click on Make the computer easier to see
 Uncheck Remove background images (where available)
