Windows 7: Separate Wallpaper on dual montior system

Separate Wallpaper on dual montior system

Hi Gang,

Was wondering if anyone could direct me to a program/application that would allow me to place a different wallpaper on two monitors. My laptop allows me to do so, albeit the desktop doesn't.

Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT OC with Nvidia PhysX Control Panel (panel doesn't let you set up separate wallpaper on dual monitor system).

On my laptop (Vista 64 Ultimate) HP this can be done in the Properties section, but on the desktop this option is not present (neither Vista or Win 7).

Attempted several searches, but nothing seems to present itself to me'

Thanks for any help. . .
