Interesting.. and disappointing. I just read the EULA of windows 7 starter. I thought blocking the user via software from changeing the background would be all Microsoft does. But apparently RCIX, you're right. They ban it also by license.. Here's the respective snippet (hope I don't break any agreements by posting this one here... ;P)

Mh. The program starts correctly, but applying a wallpaper has no effect. But then, I changed the wallpaper with Sopan's program first. Maybe that overwrote some settings, this tool needs to funciton. Anyway: Thanks for the link. Maybe someone else could try to see if this wallpaper changer works with them.

Hi Chris. Thanks for the info about the Anytime Upgrade. But being a student, those $80 are quite a lot for the functionality I'm looking for. Right now, I'm still curious about other possible solutions. But L'll keep it in mind if I run into more limitations of that kind.

You're right about resetting the permissions. I tried this one and managed to overwrite the image, just to end up with a black desktop background. Unfortunately, changing the wallpaper with myColor doesn't work very well. I can do it, if I apply a complete theme for all icons and design elements in windows. Applying just a single wallpaper has no effect. In other words I can choose between the free themes from myColor or the standard Windows set.
