By default, the Windows 7 Home Basic edition will only allow you to change the desktop background by right clicking on a image and clicking on Set as desktop background.
If you plan on doing a in-place upgrade to another higher level edition of Windows 7 in the future, then be sure to uninstall this Oceanis Change Background Windows 7 or Personalization Panel program first to avoid incompatibility issues with it in the new edition of Windows 7. It was designed to only work in the Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions.
Using the "Oceanis Change Background Windows 7" Program
This will show you how to download and use the program Oceanis Change Background Windows 7 provided by Oceanis so that you can change the desktop background with a optional desktop slideshow (shuffle) in the Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions.
If the Oceanis program is closed, then the desktop background goes with it. You will need to leave the Oceanis program running to keep the background.
If the Oceanis Change Background Windows 7 program no longer works properly after installing some Windows Updates, then uninstall and reinstall the Oceanis Change Background Windows 7 program to have it run properly again.
If you get the black wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter, then:
Change the Color Scheme to Windows Classic and click on Apply, then change it to Windows Basic and click on OK.
If non of the above helped, then also see if this solution by Foe may be a possible fix.
Run a sfc /scannow command, and restart the computer afterwards. You may have some corrupted system files causing the background wallpaper to not display.

This program works with Windows 7 starter just as described. I am a little puzzled about the origin of the software. Can you explain a little about where it came from, who wrote it, etc. and assure me and others that it is not malware.
