✔ Best Answer
Do a system restore to BEFORE the image was added.
Or just right click on a bare spot on your desktop and click personalize, then choose an image for your desktop

Yeah, just replace the background with something else.

System Restore seems a bit like overkill to me. I would try the other suggestions given in #2 and #3 first.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you want to delete the image, and it is still currently
your wallpaper image, you can see its name on the
"Personalization" screen, near the bottom-left, under
where it says "Desktop Background". Search for that
name with your search function. When it is found, you
should be able to delete it.

Even easier, from the top of the Personalize screen (right-click empty part of the desktop and go to Personalize), choose "My Favorite Theme".

It's likely they didn't go through the trouble of overwriting the default theme, so the two themes listed are "Unsaved Theme" and "My Favorite Theme". Otherwise, do what the others have suggested and manually choose a new background via the "Desktop Background" button at the bottom. System Restore is exorbitant in this case.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
