use the group policy settings to do this, but if im not mistaken you either will disable the right mouse click or their is an option to disable to change the wallpaper.

with this in mind if they log in they can change the wallpaper , but once they log out and back in it reverts back to the default one

may be you can try setting up a policy (local or global) that prevent users from changing their wallpaper:
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Display\Prevent Changing Wallpaper
