    That is a bit complicated, a lot actually, and it never works reliably.

    Better to use something like Reboot Restore Rx Freeware.

    Your system specs do not reveal a lot, but the most important fact is there to see: you have PRO edition. it means that you can use Group Plocis to do exactly what you want to. Contrary to what was told to you above, it will be quite an easy task.

    Read this:

    Remember that any local admin can change your Group Policies. This will only work if all other users are using a standard account.

    Unfortunately, that will only prevent users changing a wallpaper via settings, but they can still change it using any other software, like opening an image and setting it as a wallpaper.
