The Darkness,

Can you make sure active desktop is disabled? Please open the Control Panel, open display, click the desktop tab, click the "customize desktop" button, click the web tab, and make sure that nothing is checked in this window.

If active desktop was ok we recommend you got back to the desktop tab under the display properties window and try switching to an alternate desktop to see if it has the same issue. If it doesn’t, then try switching back to your grandmother background.
