    Desktop background

    So... we currently use active desktop for our wallpapers, which works nicely, but we're having to use IE6 for it to function. The powers that be have decided they want to upgrade to IE8, (which kills active desktop afaik).

    How do you all set your student backgrounds? I'm thinking BGinfo is the way to go, but want some alternatives

    Cheers,

    Dom

    Hmm, just found a reg key which allows me to use active desktop with IE 7/8 -

    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components
    Change the value of DeskHtmlVersion to zero instead of decimal 272.
    However... it seems to be set back to 272 after about 2 seconds of logging on, so i see my active desktop background, but then it disappears to be replaced with the black screen with a little x :-(
