wallpaper and screen saver should be done under User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Control Panel/Display

Configuring desktop items

Many organizations permit users to choose their own desktop wallpaper or screen savers. However, in a Terminal Server environment, these graphics can have an effect on performance. Use the following Group Policy settings to control users’ ability to change wallpaper and screen savers.

Screen savers   You can use several Group Policy settings to affect the user’s screen saver. You can disable screen savers altogether by disabling the Screen Saver policy. You can also specify the screen saver by enabling this policy and also by enabling and specifying the screen saver executable name in the Screen Saver executable name policy. For more information about these Group Policy settings, see the Explain tab located on the property sheet for each policy.

Wallpaper   By enabling the Prevent changing wallpaper setting you can disable all the options in the Desktop tab of Display in Control Panel. This includes changing the wallpaper and changing the appearance of the desktop icons. By not allowing these changes, you can ensure that users do not choose desktop display items that might affect the performance of the server.

did you done this? remember to go to start - run - cmd and run the command gpupdate /force

Windows 7 has a different policy to set specific screen saver:

 

[User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization: Force specific screen saver]

Hi,

Running GPRESULT/R in Windows 7
http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?t=1115171

Check the GPRESULT/R in Windows 7 from the Problamatic Machine and compare GPRESULT/R with the working machine.

Hope that helps :)
