Hello, i have recently purchased a Dell netbook with windows 7 starter installed.

I have tried to change to a wallpaper of my choice, but am informed it cannot be done on 7 starter edition, maybe needs a programme adding to do this, any help or ideas please, need to get rid of boring standard wallpaper ?
Thanks.
