    Correct me if I'm wrong here, but does it not mention on the policy description that it can be either C:\back.jpg or \\svr\share\back.jpg.

    You could try it and apply it to a test machine? Would be quite useful to know as our new Windows 7 machines are getting black backgrounds and this would be a super easy way to change them if required.

    Not having a Windows 7 machine to hand I can't experiment. However if other methods do not work have a look at this:

    Link: John’s Background Switcher

    You can specify which pictures to choose from:

    Individual pictures on your computer.

    Folders containing pictures on your computer such as ‘My Pictures’.

    Flickr photo sharing – selecting pictures by person, tags, sets or just plain random. You never know what you’re going to get next!

    Facebook – your friends photos on your desktop!

    Vladstudio wallpapers – choose from the coolest wallpapers on the net!

    Any Media RSS feed – choose pictures from sites like DeviantArt, Photobucket, LOLCats and Zooomr amongst many others!

    Phanfare web albums – keep up to date with your friends and family.

    smugmug photo galleries – yours, your friends, anybody’s!

    Picasa Web Albums – choose from specific albums or any search text.

    Webshots – if you’re a Webshots user, you can choose from your online or downloaded photos and collections.

    Google Image Search – get pictures from anywhere across the internet.

    Bing Image Search – not a Google fanboy? Then Bing is for you!

    Yahoo! image search – the internet is your oyster!
    However: Choose your sources with caution: You may have unexpected results when automatically selecting pictures from the web!
