Open the Registry and go to this Key:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

In the right pane, you'll see "Wallpaper" Double-click on it, and remove the entry. Then click OK and close the Registry. It's that simple.

If it's just a wallpaper issue then simply right click on an empty space on the desktop, click Properties, then click the Desktop tab and in the large window below the word Background: choose the pic that you want as a background (wallpaper). The click OK.

Software gives me a headache.

It's not the background wallpaper that the OP is referencing. It's the startup/shutdown wallpaper.
