"Screen Themes" is a commercial wall paper and screen saver image service.

http://www.screenthemes.com/

You install the software, and purchase image collections.

In a business environment, I STRONGLY caution against even allowing users to install programs of this type, let alone copying the software from 1 PC to another.

If the use of personal software is allowed, what you should do, is allow the user who wants the software to purchase their own copy, and download the image collections they desire.

As to your primary question, there should be a .bmp file in the Windows folder that contains the current wall paper image.
(for W98 or newer, this could also be a .jpg or .htm file)
It could also be in the program file for "Screen Themes".
(C:\Program Files\Screen Themes)??

There WILL be registry keys and DLL files associated with this program, so you cannot simply copy over the files.
I suspect that the images on the hard drive are in a proprietary format that cannot be opened by most graphic viewers.

If you are determined to move the images, you might be able to set each desired image as the current wall paper, copy and rename the file, then move to the next image.
