Verify permissions in Disk Utility and run Disk Repair while you're at it. Should solve any software issue that may cause this.
Report back if it doesn't.

It should be in Applications / Utilities / Disk Utility

If it is not there, boot up from your OSX dvd insert disc, and restart holding down the C key. Once boted up do not go through the install process but select Disk Utility from the top menu and run it from there

What sort of "wallpapers" are you using? Are they wallpapers/desktop backgrounds that came with the OS...or are they wallpapers you downloaded from a website?

As far as the utilities not loading...how many do you have?

Go to your applications folder on your HD, and look in the folder named "Utilities"
Disk Utility is in there, double click to open it and go from there.

You need to do a clean install if you really don't have the Disk Utility option in Applications, but as you have no discs, you are a bit out of luck.
You need to buy Tiger or Leopard from eBay, but that won't be cheap.

Hmm buying a new version is a bit overrated for this little bug.. Well thanks for the help!!
