Windows 7 starter edition that is used on these net-books does NOT have the ability to change the background.

Windows 7 Starter
The least-featured edition of Windows 7; the Windows Aero theme is not included, and it isn't available in a 64-bit variant. The desktop wallpaper, and Visual Style (Windows 7 Basic) is also not user-changeable. This edition is available pre-installed on computers through system integrators or computer manufacturers.

No download that I know of. Microsoft will sell you a upgrade to Windows 7 Home. But, your computer is not fast enough to run the Aero screen junk.
