Windows 7: Desktop Background Wallpaper - Change in Windows 7 Starter

Hi there, I'm confused. Bought my netbook yesterday with this lovely
windows 7 starter, of course can't change the background so I followed the instructions
above. After installing/restarting, the background changed to the same picture
it says it will. Then it says to click on the Oceanis Change Background W7 to change
it but everytime i click on this icon, a message pops up that says that i have to
restart my computer to run this program, my options are OK or Cancel. I click ok,
let it restart again and once it comes back on, same thing happens again.
Anything I do to try and open that Icon, it tells me to restart.
Help please.

Try the options in the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial to see if it may help afterwards. Be sure you are doing this while logged in as an administrator.
