Weird problem with xp

Everytime I put a wallpaper on my account, when I log off and go to a different account the wallpaper is the one on my account. When I change it and go back to mines its the sam thing that I changed. In another way my wallpaper stays the same for All accounts.

Same thing happens

If I use another account to change wallpaper, when I log off and log back into my other account the wallpaper will be the one that was changed on the one previously. In other words, the wallpaper is the same for all accounts. Change one and all change to the same. It doesnt really bother me but its gets annoying when you want to switch wallpapers and keep seeing the same thing.
