A .scr is a screensaver file, a PNG is just an image. You can set the default background image via GPO utilizing the PNG, no conversion needed. Utilize the "Desktop Wallpaper" policy found in the Administrative Templates - http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/Default.aspx?PolicyID=141

Insure that all users have access to the location where the PNG is saved and applied via the GPO. If it is a network location every user may not have access.
