I recently got a couple of laptops that have the backgound embedded into the system. A simple properties-desktop-background will get rid of it only until I restart the computer.
Does anyone know where usually this files/program is found so that I can remove it??

Thank you,

This is just a guess - I don't normally do Windows - but on this XP machine I see a file C:/windows/desktop.ini. Try opening this in notepad and see what you see. (This machine has no default wallpaper, and desktop.ini is empty.)

Hope this helps.

I'm not normally like this, but then I'm not normally normal.
