That is part of Windows Aero; Transparency.
Right click on the desktop and select Personalize.
Then select Windows color in the lower part of the window.
Uncheck Enable Transparency.

Transparency - Enable or Disable

I don't like the opaque view myself but it will eliminate the blurred views.

Online image as desktop image
How can you display an online image on your desktop? In XP you could go into "customize desktop" and there was a WEB tab where you could enter the url. So if the online image from the url changed, you would see the changes on your desktop as well. Isn't that possible to do with win7?
