Can i have some advice regarding my dual monitor setup

Evening all

I have a dual monitor setup and i would really like to be able to have different wallpapers on each one, would i have to install a 3rd party taskbar in order to be able to do this? If so i have heard a lot of people seem to use ultramon i believe its called, is there any good free alternates as i really dont have the cash at the mo to fork out for it.

hope you can help

many thanks

Have a great xmas everyone
