    dont think the student login lets bginfo run from the windows folder
    You can run it from a UNC path, just make sure you account for spaces in folder names and use the full UNC for both exe and bgi file location.

    I have sorted it!

    Instead of using it as a login script,

    I have set it as a policy in:

    user config/admin temp/system/logon

    run these programs at user login and set:

    c:\windows\bgibmp\bginfo.exe /i"\\domain\sysvol\domain\usersettings\tools\studen t.bgi" /accepteula /timer:0

    Mornin all, just seen the thread has had some updates since last night

    - in the startup script it gives Authenticated Users i.e. anyone who's logged in full access to that bgibmp folder so bginfo can create what it needs. Should run as any user but remember to configure the startup script as well as the logon script...

    - I put the machine name, user name, logon time and our IT department number on the bginfo plus a little message to check out our IT Portal for how-to guides and other info

    - dekstop is redirected via group policy to a common folder with read only access so it doesn't change, same for Start Menu

    - we also use mandatory profiles to keep all the settings consistent

    We're in Adult Education so don't have too much worry about students trying to break stuff but even so I hide the C: drive and run limited accounts now - give everyone local admin rights and they've got carte blanche to install stuff on the local machine so I'd be wary there...

    lucky you! our kids are a nightmare at times!

    Anyone got any idea how to disable pictaure and fax viewer from being able to set desktop backgrounds?

    eg, click on a image in windows explorer and they can use the set as desktop background option in picture tasks to change the wallpaper

    Try this: Disable Features in MSPaint (All) - PC Tools Community Forum

    Lots of fun can be had with Reshack Resource Hacker
