How would i load an image Programmatically into the forms back ground when the program starts, it will pull the image from c:\program files\blah.

Fairly simple really, just use the static method FromFile of the Image class:

    this.BackgroundImage = Image.FromFile("Path and name of your image");

The same code will also work for a PictureBox.
