Even with the Disable Active Desktop policy enabled, the user can change the wallpaper. However, I wasn't able to change the wallpaper by using the Active Desktop Wallpaper policy while Active Desktop was disabled. Also, if you set both policies, Disable Active Desktop and Active Desktop Wallpaper, the user can't change the wallpaper and Windows XP ignores the Active Desktop Wallpaper policy.
