If you go to Run and type gpedit.msc

Click on Computer Configuration - Control Panel - User Accounts and enable the 'Apply the default user logon picture to all users'

Copy the desired image to %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\user.bmp and it should then make it default for all users and should prevent them changing it.

If you meant the login screen, use the registry script located here:

Then create a .vbs script to copy the backgrounds from a network location. Set group policy to deploy both when a computer is added to a certain OU.

Hope this helps!
