Most likely you may not have the proper authority. Have you tried deleting the image as the admin user?  Is this a standard Windows wallpaper or a custom wallpaper? I don’t know if a Windows update would reinstall any of the Windows ones you deleted.

    Type c:\windows\web\wallpaper on search bar. It shows the best match for your search query. Select the folder and it invokes in wallpaper folder where you find installed wallpapers with category wise. Select category where the image resides. To delete an image right click on the selected image, then click delete. It may ask for admin password and provide the correct password and it allows to delete. If you uploaded image from other source/folder/directory, navigate this location and delete.
